I do not understand what you meant by workers’ compensation being no-fault in Florida (which is essentially true) unless you are talking about the fact that you cannot sue your employer for negligence concerning this accident. If your injuries need treatment from an assault at work, the treatments may be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation coverage assuming that your employer has such coverage. There are a lot of exemptions meaning certain types of employers and employers with only a few employees are not required to carry workers’ compensation coverage. Also, even if there is workers’ compensation coverage, it may not cover your situation if the assault was personal between you and the other person. A Florida Bar Board certified workers’ compensation lawyer can answer your questions better once you give him or her more details.
