Workers' Compensation

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a type of business insurance that protects employees in the event of a work-related injury or illness. In particular, workers’ compensation helps cover lost wages, medical treatment, and your recovery.

If you get sick or hurt yourself while on the job, it’s important to file a workers’ compensation claim with your employer’s insurance company as soon as possible. The sooner you take action, the sooner you can start receiving benefits.

How do I take advantage of workers’ compensation?

To receive workers’ compensation benefits, you need to file an official claim. As soon as you experience an injury or illness, let your employer know. They can provide you with a claim form that documents basic information about your injury or illness, including how it happened, the severity of your symptoms, and the date and time when it occurred.

After you fill out the form, submit it to your employer’s insurance company. Make sure to turn your paperwork in as soon as possible. The state of Florida requires you to file a claim within 30 days of your accident or 30 days from your doctor’s diagnosis. 

Do I need to see a doctor to receive workers’ compensation?

To receive workers’ compensation, you need to meet with a medical professional. During your initial consultation, the team conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks questions about the illness or injury and its effect on your life and ability to work.

After gathering the necessary information, the team can fill out and sign off on any necessary paperwork. This process ensures you receive your workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.

Should I visit the doctor if I’m involved in an auto accident?

If you’re involved in an automobile accident, schedule an appointment with the team at Sebring Medical Walk-In Clinic right away. This applies even if the accident was minor, like a fender bender. Many serious health problems, including whiplash take days or weeks to appear.

In addition, a check-up following an accident can alert you to potential injuries that you could file a lawsuit over. If you’re forced to miss work during your recovery, you might be able to receive insurance payouts or financial compensation.
