Presumption/Heart & Lung Bill Claims

Our attorneys specialize in the defense of claims filed under Section 112.18, Florida Statutes, consisting of allegations of presumptively compensable heart disease and hypertension involving Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters and Corrections Officers.  This is a type of litigation handled by a small number of Workers’ Compensation practitioners given its specialized nature.  We assist our clients in determining the compensability of claims and through representation at the trial and appellate level when those decisions are challenged.
