Orlando Workers Compensation Settlement 2010

Orlando Workers Compensation Settlement

The Judge of Compensation Claims (JCC) awarded compensability of, and future treatment for, a right shoulder injury. The workers comp employer (a local school board) refused to authorize treatment for the RIGHT shoulder because the initial accident and injury was just to the LEFT shoulder. Expert medical testimony convinced the JCC that the left shoulder was, in fact, injured due to over-use and compensating for the underlying right shoulder injury. As such, Florida law provides for medical care to be provided by workers comp. The School Board appealed the JCC’s award and that award was affirmed by the 1st District Court of Appeals.
