Florida Supreme Court Workers' Compensation Ruling

On April 26, 2016, the Florida Supreme Court issued its long-awaited opinion in Castellanos v. Next Door Company.

By a vote of 5 to 2, over two strong dissenting opinions, the Court held that the mandatory fee schedule in section 440.34 is unconstitutional under both the Florida and United States Constitutions. The Court based its decision solely on due process grounds and declined to address other constitutional provisions raised in the case.

It is important to note: The ruling in Castellanos will have a significant impact on the manner in which workers' compensation cases will be evaluated and handled, and employers and their insurance carriers will be faced with substantially more significant exposure for attorney's fees.
