Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits You May Receive for an Injury or Illness
Workers’ compensation benefits generally cover two scenarios:
- On-the-job injuries
- Work-related illnesses
If your loved one passed away because of a work-related injury, then our team can help you file a wrongful death claim.
If a work-related illness or injury warrants, our team will pursue workers’ compensation benefits for you. These benefits could cover:
- All your injury- or illness-related medical costs
- A portion of your lost wages while you are injured or ill
If we bring a lawsuit on your behalf, you might be entitled to additional forms of coverage. You may receive compensation for pain and suffering and other losses.
Workers’ compensation policies differ in their precise forms of coverage. Some policies may cover a more significant share of lost wages than others, while some may provide coverage for expenses like rehabilitation and travel expenses related to medical care.
Florida’s Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) notes that your specific type of disability could impact the benefits you receive. Disability classifications include:
- Temporary total disability (TTD)
- Temporary partial disability (TPD)
- Permanent total disability (PTD)
You could also be entitled to compensation for diminished earning capacity once you return to work.
Navigating the workers’ compensation process could be complicated. Our team will lead your case and deal with this process for you.

Pursuing a Personal Injury Claim in Addition to a Workers’ Compensation Case
The workers’ compensation lawyer that we assign to your case will pursue a positive outcome for you. This may mean securing compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and other covered losses.
To fight for a fair outcome for you, our workers’ compensation attorneys will:
- Present an evidence-supported case.
- Engage in negotiation talks with insurance company representatives
- Counter any lowball compensation offers received
- Protect you from allegations that you caused your own on-the-job injury
Florida’s no-fault workers’ compensation laws mean that you could be entitled to coverage no matter who caused your injury or illness. However, allegations that you were impaired, involved in non-work-related activities, or were engaged in “horseplay” could negatively affect your coverage. Our legal team will defend you against such allegations.
Accepting a workers’ compensation offer could bar you from suing your employer, as the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR) explains.
