What if the injury was the employee's fault?

Even if the injury was the employee's fault, under workers comp law in Florida, he's still entitled to receive workers comp benefits, the medical, the lost wages. Some of the benefits, however, may be reduced, depending on what exactly cause the accident, or what he or she did to cause the accident. And I would recommend that you consult a workers comp attorney, to see if your benefits may be reduced by your actions.
