How much can I expect to be paid while I am out of work?
The amount of benefit compensation you receive after a work accident in Florida depends on your condition following the accident. If you are on a “no-work” status where a doctor has documented that you cannot return to work in any capacity you may be entitled to Temporary Total Disability Benefits. If you are able to return to working in a limited capacity you are considered to be on “light duty” status which may qualify you for Temporary Partial Disability Benefits. If you are uncertain if your employer is offering you the proper benefits you should bring your case to a Florida Workers’ Compensation attorney.
