Ft. Lauderdale Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Protecting the Workforce in Fort Lauderdale
Aside from a few exceptions, all employees in the state of Florida are required to purchase workers' compensation coverage. This is an insurance policy that stands in place for financial compensation in the event that you or a loved one is injured, made ill, or has suffered death.
Workers' compensation is a protecting agent for both employers and employees. As an employee, you should be covered regardless of fault in the accident. For an employer, this insurance policy protects them against major litigation in the event that the incident was in fact their fault.
However, these policies must be upheld by your employer. In the event that you are hurt and are not properly compensated for your injuries, the Ft. Lauderdale workers' compensation attorneys at White Law Center want to help.
What Workers' Compensation Covers
While this policy is a relative advancement in the areas of workplace ethics, it is not always beneficial in practice. Employer’s still withhold compensation, and injured employees and their families are left with expenses that are impossible to cover.
Workers' compensation insurance is designed to provide:
- Medical expenses
- Partial wages
Many injured workers are still living in an impoverished state due to their injuries – the partial wages are not livable, the injured worker will not be able to return to work, and medical expenses are not fully being covered. When this occurs, White Law Center is there to defend you.
