Scott Beck v. City of Tallahassee Police Department and City of Tallahassee

In Scott Beck v. City of Tallahassee Police Department and City of Tallahassee Claimant filed a notice of medical conflict regarding the issue of a permanent impairment rating. The E/C disputed that such conflict was present. Upon review of the submitted deposition testimonies, the JCC found the medical opinions were in disagreement and appointment of an EMA was appropriate. Separately, the E/C had also moved for EMA appointment, but on the issue of compensability of claimant’s hypertension. Claimant objected to EMA appointment on this issue, asserting claimant’s “disability” was a factual question for the JCC to resolve. The JCC disagreed, finding the medical opinions were in conflict as to whether claimant suffered a disability due to hypertension. EMA appointed: TBD.
