Illegal Aliens Are Also Entitled to Worker’s Compensation Benefits
Even if you are an illegal alien without the proper documentation for work purposes, under the law of the state of Florida, you are entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. The case law in Florida states that in order for an injured worker to forfeit his worker’s compensation benefits he/she must have used the false social security number for the purposes of securing worker’s compensation benefits. Therefore, if the injured worker has a false social security number but never uses it as part of the worker’s compensation case then the insurance company can never claim that same was used for the purpose of securing/obtaining worker’s compensation benefits. However, these cases can be complicated and a very insignificant error can be viewed as fraud in the worker’s compensation world, it is for that reason that the best step is to seek legal assistance early into the case.
