How Much Could I Get for Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation was one of the first forms of social insurance. Your entitlement of this social insurance can vary greatly depending on several factors such as the severity of your injury, the anticipated costs of medical treatment, your earning capability prior to the injury, and your ability to pursue gainful employment. It is also dependent on the anticipated length of your disability.
If your injury prevents you from working for more than 7 days, you may be able to receive money to replace what you were not able to earn.
Temporary and Permanent Disability
Florida workers with a temporary disability are entitled to benefits covering two-thirds of their average weekly wage up to a maximum of $917, whereas permanently injured workers get 75% of that.
Temporary Partial Disability
If you are able to return to work but are not able to make the same earnings, you may receive 80% of the difference as compensation.
If your doctor determines you will not get any better regardless of further medical treatment you will be assigned an impairment rating and you may receive money based on that number.
