A law that limits workers compensation benefits to five years when an injured employee is 70 or older when a workplace accident occurs is constitutional, a Florida appeals court has ruled. The case of Mollie Berman vs. Dillard’s and ESIS concerns a 2004 accident that occurred when the claimant was 72. Ms. Berman began receiving permanent total disability benefits at age 74, the opinion shows. Then in 2011, her employer suspended Ms. Berman’s benefits, stating that her entitlement to them had ended.
