White Paper

Should Immigration Status be Considered When Evaluating a Florida Workers’ Compensation Claim for Potential Permanent Total Disability?

Chartwell Law has published a new white paper on the role of immigration status when evaluating a Florida resident's WC claim.

White Paper Summary

When evaluating whether to accept a claimant as permanently and totally disabled (PTD), carriers are often faced with claimants who have difficulty finding employment due to their immigration status. While immigration status is not an enumerated factor, case law suggests it can be considered. Undocumented persons living in the United States cannot obtain a driver’s license and may have limited English language skills, which are necessary to obtain many jobs.
