Help for Victims of Workplace Motor Vehicle Accidents

By addressing injuries incurred on the job on a "no-fault" basis, workers' compensation laws in the state of Florida are designed to protect both the employer and the employee involved in a workplace accident. This means that the employee can collect compensation regardless of the cause of the accident. In addition, these laws protect employers because - even if the employer is at fault or partially at fault for the injury - he or she cannot be sued for damages.

What to do when you have been in a car accident?

  • Call 911 and ask for an officer to come to do a traffic accident report
  • Make sure everyone in your vehicle is okay
  • Make sure other driver(s) are okay but keep conversation with them as brief as possible
  • Inspect your car (or tell driver of the vehicle)
  • Take pictures of the damage of both vehicles
  • Contact an attorney to find out your rights
  • Contact your insurance company to tell them about the accident/ damage to your car
  • (I personally do not advise giving your insurance company a RECORDED statement without an attorney on the phone)
  • Seek any medical care you may need (Myself, or the attorney you may choose can help set you up with the right doctor for you in your area)

How do I file a workers' compensation claim for my motor vehicle accident?

In order to obtain compensation for your motor vehicle workplace injury, you must file a claim with the Division of Workers' Compensation office in the Florida Department of Financial Services. You have 30 days from the date of the accident or the date you were made aware of your injury or illness to file this claim. An attorney can help you follow the proper protocol and make sure that you obtain all of the compensation you are entitled to, including holding any third parties that may be responsible for your injury financially accountable.
