In 2018, Florida was one of the few states that has passed a law that now provides workers’

compensation coverage to include not only medical benefits, but loss and wages, for those first

responders who have witnessed a traumatic event, and now are suffering from PTSD, post-

traumatic stress disorder.


Those first responders, such as firefighters, law enforcement, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians, now have the ability to pursue a workers compensation claim if they have witnessed a traumatic event. It was not like this prior to the new law of 2018.
