Once you are injured on the job, it is important to notify your employer about your injury immediately. Under the Florida workers’ compensation system, you have 30 days to notify your employer about your work-related injury or illness. Sometimes employees may underestimate their injury or think “they will be fine” and not report their injury or accident until it may be too late. Also, many times some employers and carriers may allege this defense, even though it may not be true. If you suspect your employer is ignoring your requests for medical treatment and you have been injured, don’t delay and call Pena Law Group today.
