A worker whose primary language is Spanish is not entitled to a neuropsychological evaluation by a Spanish-speaking psychologist, a split Florida 1st District Court of Appeal panel ruled on Tuesday. Jesus Trejo-Perez was working for Tarpon Springs, Florida-based Arry’s Roofing Services Inc. when he fell at least 30 feet from a ladder and suffered a closed-head injury, among other injuries, in February 2012, according to court records. His injuries were deemed compensable, and treatment was authorized.
