In the Jacksonville workers’ compensation case of Agatha Chloe v. Dillard’s, the employer terminated benefits based on a misrepresentation defense. The claimant petitioned for reinstatement of both their indemnity and medical benefits.
The employer refused and stated that the claimant had falsified statements in their deposition that detailed their attendant care. The court reviewed the evidence, including care attendant logs, which the employer claimed were the source of misrepresentation. The misleading logs were found to be incorrect, but not with the intent to obtain workers’ compensation.
