Florida workers' compensation law does offer many benefits for injured workers with a system to pursue a range of benefits for work-related accidents. However, the laws are often on the side of the employer, not the injured workers.
This also applies to workers' compensation insurance companies. The employer is the policyholder and the workers' compensation carrier is a for-profit business. When you submit a claim for workers' compensation, the insurance company and the employer both have financial incentives to reduce or deny your claim.
