Workers’ Compensation Videos

Under what circumstances would an employee injured on the job in Florida not be entitled to workers’ comp benefits?

Florida Workers’ Compensation laws may exclude employees who fail a drug test or are independent contractors. Employee behavior may also exclude someone from receiving workers’ comp benefits – deviating from their normal duties or “horseplay” can disqualify you, as can a situation where the injured worker was an aggressor injured in a fight. In any case where your employer tells you that you are disqualified from workers’ compensation benefits you should bring your case to be evaluated by a Florida workers’ compensation attorney.
