At Bundza & Rodriguez, P.A., our experienced Daytona Beach workers’ compensation lawyers have the knowledge and resources to make a meaningful difference for our clients.
Workers’ compensation laws protect people who are injured on the job. They are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with fixed monetary awards, eliminating the need for litigation. Each state mandates its individual laws for the administration of workers’ compensation claims, payments, procedures, and legal proceedings. If you have been injured or became ill while performing work as an employee, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation.

Florida Workers’ Compensation Law
Employees that sustain an injury “arising out of and in the course of employment,” or a disease or infection as a result of a work-related injury, have a workers’ compensation claim in Florida. You should report your workplace injury or work-related illness to your employer as soon as possible. If you are involved in a work-related accident, the state of Florida requires you to report the incident to your employer within 30 days of the date of the accident. Alternatively, if your doctor informs you that you are suffering from a work-related injury or illness, you must report the injury or illness to your employer within 30 days of the date your doctor told you this information. Failure to report within the timeframe required can result in denial of your workers’ compensation claim.
