Defense Verdict in Final Compensation Order

The order involved multiple petitions filed by a pro se claimant for compensability of contact dermatitis and concrete burns allegedly sustained while working. The judge ruled in favor of the employer on all petitions, finding compensability was previously resolved and the ongoing issues were moot. The judge denied and dismissed, with prejudice, claims for temporary total and temporary partial disability benefits, authorization of medical care, and all corresponding penalties and interest. Most significantly, the judge granted the employer's defense of medical non-compliance from March 21, 2017, present and found that the claimant required no further treatment for his work-related injury. The employer can recover taxable costs against the claimant pursuant to Florida Statute 440.34 as the prevailing party on all petitions.
