Workers’ Compensation Benefits for First Responders

In Florida, a historic new workers’ compensation law will become effective on October 1, 2018. This will help first responders who have been diagnosed with (PTSD), post-traumatic stress disorder. The bill, S.B. 376- went before the Florida Senate and the House of Representatives and was unanimously approved. On March 27, 2018, Governor Rick Scott signed it.
This will provide both medical and paid leave for first responders who have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Prior to the introduction of this legislation Florida first responders could only receive medical coverage, and now they may also recover their lost wages.
Florida Bill S.B 376 lists eleven conditions, of which, first responders must have met at least one. The conditions include witnessing a homicide, treating an injured person, or seeing a deceased child. The bill will become effective on October 1, 2018.
Please contact our office if you need additional information regarding Florida’s workers’ compensation laws and your eligibility to receive benefits.

The Faces of Dysphagia

Rick Rivera, a partner at the Clearwater office of Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, his wife Patti, and their two little girls, were among the families recognized as the Faces of Dysphagia this past month. June was National Dysphagia Awareness Month. The National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders was founded in August 2006 as a national, independent, 501(c)(3) not for profit organization. Inspired by the limitations of available treatments and the struggles, challenges and sheer bravery of patients suffering from Dysphagia, founding member and leading Otolaryngologist Dr. Peter Belafsky, speech pathologist and Dysphagia consultant Jan Pryor and Dysphagia patient Sonia Blue began creating their vision of a Foundation that would grow to be a leading resource for Dysphagia education, patient/caregiver support and serve as a clearinghouse for cutting edge research and development.

You may go The National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders to support and raise awareness for Dysphagia.
