Here's Bob's take.

(08-14-2014, 02:30 PM)1171 Wrote: the Florida case is not so much about adequacy of comp benefits as much as balancing the restriction of benefits to the recovery options.
a state can cut comp benefits as much as it wants but if it does so it also has to give the worker the legal option to sue in civil court is how the decision is focused.
as we know civil suits can take a very long time to resolve and during that time there are no benefits coming in precisely when they are most needed.
so for TTD and medical a civil suite is not very helpful; wage loss and PD is really where the legal balance should be.
Florida reduced that benefit significantly with no other legal option for the worker to offset the long term loss of earnings.

i'd be interested to hear what bob or kate's take on the case might be as they are long time Florida comp professionals.
