Steven Clauss v. City of Dunedin was a workers compensation case in St Petersburg, Florida. The workers comp case concerned whether the claimant had been informed of his rights and responsibilities. Through investigation, it was found that letters concerning the order had been sent to the claimant.
The claimant’s defense was that they did not recall receiving the letters, which was not accepted as proper testimony by the JCC. Since the claimant was recorded at an MMI with 0% impairment rating, his claim was denied. The claimant failed to file for the appeal by order of the court, therefore it was dismissed.
Claim for continued compensation DENIED; Penalties and interest of TPD payments DENIED; Attorney fees and costs DENIED
