ORLANDO, FL, May 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Florida workers' compensation attorney Sean McCormack has recently helped an injured CT Tech secure lost wage benefits following a severe shoulder tear. As a CT Tech, this worker was responsible for performing diagnostic scans on sick cancer patients - a task that required she use her right arm. Following a severe shoulder tear, use of her right warm was severely limited. So too was her ability to drive to and from the two clinics operated by her employer.
While seeking medical care for her injury, the client was placed on light duty restrictions. This move was defended by the employer on the basis that reasonable work accommodations had been made. The employer went on to suggest that if the client required help, she could ask her co-workers. The client returned to work for several days in an attempt to meet her employer's demands, but found the inability to use her right are too limiting.
With the assistance of Sean McCormack, this case was brought before a Judge who, after reviewing the evidence, ruled that the employer's efforts did not constitute an appropriate offer of lighter duty. Failure to offer the client work that did not require driving while also placing additional burdens on co-workers who were still required to perform their own duties was enough for this Judge to determine lost wage benefits should be granted.
