Florida Workers’ Compensation coverage is a type of insurance mandated for virtually all employers to provide lost wages and medical care to its workforce in the event of on-the-job injuries. In exchange, the employees gives up their rights to sue the job for negligence.

If injured on the job in Coral Springs, its best to consult with a Coral Springs Workers’ Compensation Lawyer as soon as possible to learn about how the Florida Workers’ Compensation process works.
In a recent incident, a 53 year-old Coral Springs construction worker was taken to the hospital after falling from the scaffolding at a job site. When paramedics arrived, it was difficult to transport him because there was no stairway or elevator constructed in the building yet. The crew therefore had to improvise, but eventually transported him where he was treated for serious injuries due to two broken legs, a fractured back and broken pelvis. In this instance, the injured worker should contact a Coral Springs Workers’ Compensation lawyer as soon as possible in order to determine the best course of action to take. It is also important to note if the injured employee believes that another company working on the same construction site may have been responsible for the accident, there could be a personal injury lawsuit.
