Florida 7 day injury wait before pay
#1
Hi

I was injured about 10 days ago and immediately filed wc paperwork. I was seeing er and urgent care for a week and was put off work here and there for a day or two.

I have worked 15 hours in the past 10 days. Do I have to be out of work completely for 7 days straight before I can receive the workers compensation pay? Specialist doc took me off work today for at least a week.

Thanks.

no.
the 7 days do not have to be consecutive.
the seven aren't paid until you've been off 21 days.

it may take 2 weeks to make payment after the carrier is notified.

1171 is right you don't get paid for it until 21 days. I filed 7/19/11 and didn't get the check for that week until the middle of September. If your not off for 21 days you lose it.
