What to Do If You’ve Been Injured on the Job and Your Employer Does Not Have Workers’ Compensation

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

In the state of Florida, most employers are required to provide workers’ compensation. In the construction industry, all employers must carry workers’ compensation. Industries outside of construction with four or more employees must carry it, and employers in the farming industry with more five or more employees are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance.
If your employer does not have workers’ compensation, you need to contact one of our aggressive workers’ compensation attorneys right away. It may be illegal for your employer to not have workers’ compensation insurance, or you may need to file a claim with the uninsured employers’ fund. You deserve to be compensated for any on the job injury, but this can become more difficult when your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance. Our attorneys can help you determine the best course of action to take, and help ensure you are provided with the compensation you will require to recover.
