Dagoberto De Armas v. Armstrong Air & Heating and Amtrust North America of Florida was a Florida workers compensation case concerning whether the claimant should be transferred to a second independent medical examiner (IME). The claimant suffered from hypertension, and defended that their initial doctor was a qualified examiner of the injury. The E/C claimed otherwise, but did not provide any evidence or testimony that the first doctor was unqualified. Therefore, the E/C’s request for a second IME was denied, and the claimant was allowed to continue seeing their initial IME doctor.
Second IME DENIED; Motion to continue final hearing DENIED
