Florida Disability Benefits Cap struck down in ‘Westphal’ Case

The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that the state’s 104-week cap on temporary total disability benefits is unconstitutional.

Bradley Westphal, who worked as a firefighter and paramedic for the city of St. Petersburg, Florida, sustained compensable injuries to his back and knee in 2009, court records show. He later received back surgery and additional medical treatment for nerve damage in his legs.
