The first thing to understand is this: workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system. That means, regardless of whose fault the accident was, if you are injured by an accident that arose out of and occurred in the course and scope of your employment, then you have a “compensable” workers’ compensation claim.
So, you have a compensable claim. What do you get? For starters, you do NOT get pain and suffering. You are not entitled to any judgment for damages from a judge or a jury. You are entitled to benefits, as provided in Chapter 440 of the Florida Statutes.
