What if my injury prevents me from doing the job(s) I've done all my life?

The law provides employees an outlet for retraining and job opportunities. If you have been injured on the job so severely that you cannot return, you can work with the Florida Division of Vocational Rehabilitationoffice to explore your options. The workers' compensation section has a brief overview of what the division offers. You can find vocational counseling, job-seeking skills, on-the-job training, job placement, and retraining opportunities through the web site.
