How much will injured workers get paid by workers' compensation in Ormond Beach?
Injured workers in the Ormond/Daytona Beach areas, as well as throughout Florida, are entitled to lost wages when injured on the job. Lost wages paid by the workers' compensation carrier are based on an employee's average weekly wage or AWW. The AWW is based on approximately 13 weeks of earnings prior to the injury and include overtime and fringe benefits like health insurance if the employer has discontinued providing health insurance. Once the AWW has been calculated, the amount of lost wages will be 2/3 of the AWW if an authorized doctor has the employee on a "no work" status and 64% of AWW if the authorized doctor has the injured worker on work limitations which the employer cannot accommodate.
