In Florida, employers are required by law to provide a safe work environment for employees and to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits if you were injured at work. If you are an injured worker, you may have questions about the benefits process or you may have already been denied workers’ compensation benefits.
