Construction work is notorious for workers’ compensation claims so construction companies have different rules in Florida about when workers’ compensation coverage is required. Unfortunately, a construction worker at the site of the upcoming Wyndham Grand resort in Clearwater Beach will likely now need to know more about Florida workers’ compensation law.
According to the Clearwater Patch, Michael Stivers, of Tierra Verde, was injured while working for Clearwater Plumbing on the Wyndham Grand resort construction site. The work accident resulted in a difficult recovery for Clearwater Fire & Rescue crews. The Clearwater Fire & Rescue crews had to devise a plan to help the man get out of the building safely by using a plan to use a giant construction crane and a basket to carefully lift the injured worker out of the building and place him on the street where paramedics were waiting. Mr. Stivers was taken to Bayfront Health.
Florida workers’ compensation law can be very confusing for an injured worker. The law requires proper notice and distinct steps necessary to take in order to secure workers’ compensation benefits such as medical care and lost wages. Not know how the process works could delay an injured worker’s receipt of workers’ compensation benefits.
If you or a loved one is injured in a work-related injury, it is important that you talk with an attorney who understands Florida workers’ compensation law. Unfortunately, most employers don’t understand the law and the carrier is not always looking out for the injured worker’s best interest.
