Do I have to pay any of my medical bills for a work-related injury in Florida?

Whether or not you have to pay your medical bills for a work-related injury in Florida is going to depend on whether you qualify for benefits under the workers' comp law. If you report your accident to your employer, ask for medical care, they send you to a workers' comp doctor, in that scenario, you don't have to repay those bills. However, if you go outside of the workers' comp system, you may need to repay those bills. I recommend speaking to a lawyer, a workers' comp lawyer, who can kind of guide you through this process and let you know whether or not your medical bills need to be paid.
