Workers Compensation

Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation lawyer David I. Fuchs has more than 20 years of experience in successfully representing employees and workers hurt on the job who have sustained and suffered serious bodily injuries and loss of wages because of the negligence of co-workers, their employers, or another company or party.

 

Workers’ Compensation History in Florida

  • 1930s: In the early 1930s, Florida created a statewide campaign to attract business owners to migrate their enterprises to the state. Marketing campaigns boasted a more lucrative, liberal, and innovative economic environment.
  • New businesses migrating, a new “workmen’s” compensation plan was needed. Prospective employers would understand their susceptibility to lawsuits and more and more workers were in need of protection.
  • 1935: A new Florida Industrial Commission is put in place. This commission was comprised of a total of three members. The governor appointed two members and the other was the "chairman” and served a four-year term.
  • The first year of the Commission, almost 11,000 workmen’s compensation cases were reported. Of the cases that settled, almost $300,000 in benefits were paid out.
  • 1937: The commission handled About 40,000 cases, providing benefits of more than $950,000.00 to injured employees for damages that included income compensation and medical treatment.
  • 1978: The “fixed benefit” system underwent a drastic change to the “wage loss concept.”
  • 1988: Another major effort to clean up the workers’ compensation effort took place to lessen the amount of fraud occurring within the system.

Current Climate of Workers’ Compensation

  • Injured workplace accident workers receive income and supplemental benefits.
  • New programs such as managed health care arrangements (MCAs) and the Employee’s Assistance Office (EAO) were introduced to help prevent litigation.
  • The Division of Workers’ Compensation continues to organize, update, inform, and educate through many various sources.
