Disabled Davie Cop Says He's Being Denied Benefits, Lawsuit Claims
|Kickstart Your Heart|
Michael Necolletos, an 11-year veteran of the Davie P.D., filed for Workers Compensation after a 2007 heart attack left him unable to patrol.
About a year later, he left his job permanently because he was still too sick to work, only to find out that this was not quite the case.
When Necolettos applied for disability retirement benefits, the Davie Police Pension Board refused to pay because he received Workers' Comp, he says.
Necolettos relied on the town's promises "to his detriment" -- and is out $112,041.25 because of it, the suit claims.
