Unfortunately for Florida residents, state laws regarding workers’ compensation claims are biased in favor of employers, not employees. The system requires injured employees to provide a significant amount of proof and document of their injuries in order to receive reparations.
In Florida, employers or insurance companies decide which physician an injured employee can go to, and employees only have a one-time opportunity to request a new appointed provider.
Employees with preexisting conditions have to prove that a workplace injury accounts for more than half of their medical care costs. The state can deny disability claims if an alternative work assignment is identified for the employee, even if the job does not match the employees’ field, skills, work background, or salary range.
You should report any workplace injuries to your employer immediately, if possible. In many cases, the law limits the time between an injury date and its report date. Since the workers’ compensation laws already favor the employer, it is important to document as early as possible.
In most cases, the window of opportunity to file an injury report is within 30 days of the initial injury. There are some extenuating circumstances that would permit a case from being filed after the 30-day period.
If at all possible, getting the injury report in writing and collecting as much documentation as you can will help your legal team fight better in your favor.
Work from home employees are eligible for workers’ compensation, however, the burden of proof is greater on the individual in these cases. Corporations are required to keep certain documentation regarding workplace incidents. The built-in nature of this documentation automatically makes it easier for traditional employees to prove the validity of their injuries.
There are two important pieces of a remote workers’ compensation case that typically determine whether it will stand up in court:
Where did the injury occur? Was it at a workspace designated in the employment agreement?
Was the employee acting on behalf of the employer when the injury occurred?
In any scenario, it is important to have specific details on the incident that resulted in the injury so culpability can be determined.

Even more than that, we only advocate for injured employees and have never represented the interests of employers or insurance companies.
