Closed Head Injury - Workers' Compensation

Micheal A. Edwards successfully defended an agricultural/trucking company on an appeal that was heard in the Florida Supreme Court and remanded to the First District Court of Appeal for decision.  The elderly workers’ compensation claimant had sustained a closed head injury after being struck by a truck at work and was claiming permanent total disability and further medical care based upon hearing loss, vertigo, dementia and cognitive deficits.  At trial, Mr. Edwards had successfully defended these claims which were denied in their entirety.  Potential exposure exceeded $350,000.
