Florida INC. Workers' Compensation Policy

Florida is already one of the hardest states for workers seeking treatment or lost wages when injured on the job. Now lawmakers are trying again to make it more difficult for employees to sue when they have wrongly been denied workers' compensation. Senate bills would impose new caps on workers' attorney fees in such disputes, which critics say will discourage lawyers from taking cases. here

"What we're trying to do is reduce attorney involvement in the system," said Rep. Danny Burgess, a Zephyrhills Republican leading the House legislation.
