Orlando Workers’ Compensation Trial Award Over $250,000
2014 Orlando District Trial Award of Permanent Total Disability Over $250,000
A 68 year old Hispanic gentleman who does not speak English won his trial for Permanent Total Disability benefits. This gentleman had shoulder and hand injuries from two accidents with the same employer. The employer placed surveillance on this injured worker and attempted to convince the Judge that the injured worker was capable of employment. Both doctors that were deposed in this case stated that the surveillance did not show an ability to work more than the restrictions already provided by these doctors. The Judge ruled that the injured worker was entitled to have Workers’ Comp total disability benefits paid by the Workers’ Compensation insurance company.
