The Court of Appeal for the 1st District of Florida ruled that a worker’s claim for benefits for an alleged injury to his neck and back was not timely filed and that there were “serious gaps regarding causation in the hospital records.”
In 2019 Eddy Bonhomme was employed by Staff Team Hotels Corp., a hotel staffing company, when he was asked to work with another employee and help carry mattresses. Mr. Bonhomme testified that he made six trips carrying mattresses. On the fourth trip, he “felt a tingling from head to toe on the right side" as if his right side was being “twisted,” he said. He finished moving the rest of the mattresses and did not tell his employer about the incident, according to Bonhomme v. Staff Team Hotels Corp.
