Under Florida Workers’ Compensation law, employees or others who are hurt while on the job must meet specific qualifications to obtain this benefit. For example, there are time limits for reporting your injuries to your employer. Even if an injury appears to be minor, this is important to do, because often a seemingly minor injury can worsen over time. If you have not reported the injury within time limitations, you may be ineligible for benefits.
