Mike Ricci Obtained Favorable Opinion in AWW Dispute

Mike Ricci obtained a favorable Opinion and Award from the Full Commission regarding an average weekly wage (AWW) dispute. Defendant-Insurer had filed a Form 60 accepting plaintiff’s claim and stipulating to an AWW based on initial reports of plaintiff’s wages, if he had been employed on a full time basis.
