For the second quarter of 2018, what great diversity we have in legal topics in this case law update. The 1st DCA provided more instruction on attorney’s fees – especially with fees in excess of the statutory guidelines. Medically, we have more fine-tuning on claimant IME’s and the right to a one-time change. We also will examine the fundamentals of “disability,” the hallmark of indemnity benefits. Finally, we have a broad array of other topics, some we haven’t covered in years: coverage issues, lack of prosecution, 120-day rule, the “intoxication defense,” and death benefits (s. 440.16). There is always something new to learn! Lunch and Learn With Tim continues its quarterly review of all the workers’ compensation cases that have been published by the First District Court of Appeal. What better way to spend a lunch than to feed on the latest serving of the Court?
