The laws that cover workplace injuries in Florida can be very complex. In situations where a workplace injury is caused by the negligence of an employer or a co-worker, workers' compensation is the sole remedy for an injured worker. Workers' compensation will provide compensation for medical benefits and a part of an injured worker's lost wages. However, in most cases, workers' compensation is unlikely to fully compensate an injured worker.
However, in situations where some entity other than the employer or co-worker is responsible for an on-the-job injury, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed. Below are common situations where a personal injury lawsuit may be appropriate:
- A worker on a construction site might be injured because of falling debris dropped by a subcontractor's employees.
- A warehouse worker could be hurt if the ladder he or she is standing on is defective and breaks, resulting in a fall.
- A delivery driver may be injured in a car accident because of another reckless driver on the road.
In a personal injury suit, an injured worker can recover for medical expenses, lost wages, and in certain cases, pain and suffering. An attorney who understands these laws can help you fully protect your rights and seek the fullest possible recovery.
