Florida’s First District Court of Appeals ruled that a workers’ compensation insurance company cannot deny payment of permanent total disability benefits based on an argument that a possible upcoming surgery might make the injured worker better in the future.

Because current workers’ compensation laws require specific medical evidence to prevail in a claim for permanent total disability, the work comp insurance companies will often deny payment of this classification of lost wages. Our dedicated workers’ compensation attorneys represent injured workers throughout the state of Florida, including Palm Beach County, Broward County, St. Lucie County, Martin County and more.
