Felix Aquino v. American Airlines and Sedgwick CMS

In Felix Aquino v. American Airlines and Sedgwick CMS the Claimant injured his calf while walking through the airport security towards a parking-lot-shuttle bus stop after clocking out and leaving work. Claimant filed a Petition for Benefits which the E/C denied in its entirety. The JCC concluded that the claimant could not recover due to the “going or coming” rule. Claimant appealed claiming his case fell within an exception to the rule. Claimant argued that he was in between two parts of the employer’s premises and therefore the “going or coming” rule does not apply. The DCA found no error in the JCC’s decision and AFFIRMED stating that the public area where the claimant was injured was not the employer’s premises.
