All states mandate that employers provide workers’ compensation insurance. However, the specific stipulations around this mandate vary by state, and so does the process around acquiring benefits. The rule of thumb in Florida is that an employer must provide workers compensation insurance for a company of four or more workers. However, in instances of construction work, employers must secure workers’ compensation insurance for one employee. The process for obtaining workers compensation benefits varies by situation and location, as does an employer’s willingness to aid in the process by filing a report. State workers’ compensation processes, in theory, are self-executing. However, we recognize that this is not always the case, and you may benefit from the guidance of a Palm Beach workers’ compensation attorney.
Some insurance companies are extremely helpful when it comes to providing benefits, communicating thoroughly, issuing lost wage checks on time, and promptly arranging medical appointments, to ensure patient satisfaction. However, there are also many insurance providers that are less forthcoming and helpful throughout the process, delaying payments and accumulating interest in their bank accounts as your physical and financial states worsen.
