Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Florida

October 05, 2020

Workers’ compensation programs exist in order to provide protections for individuals who suffer from work-related injuries. The laws related to workers’ compensation vary from state to state. In general, these programs cover the medical costs associated with work-related injuries, and some wage replacement for employees who miss work as a result of their injury or illness. Workers’ compensation benefits do not include some forms of compensation available in personal injury lawsuits, such as payments for pain and suffering. However, unlike a personal injury lawsuit, workers’ compensation benefits are not based on fault. This means that it is possible for an injured employee to collect workers’ compensation even when no one wrongfully or negligently caused the injury, or even if the injured person caused the injury through his or her own carelessness.

The investigation into the incident determined that the Air Education and Training Command failed to follow adequate safety protocols prior to the accident. The guidelines indicate that in order to protect the trainees, each is meant to be tethered to another swimmer of approximately the same ability.
