Her persistence in the pursuit of justice has resulted in groundbreaking changes to Workers’ Compensation law which gained country-wide attention now studied by Workers’ Compensation legal professionals throughout the State of Florida. In Sedgwick CMS v. Valcourt-Williams, 271 So.3d 1133 (Fla. 1st DCA 2019), often referred to as “the dog case”, Ms. Bogle stood firmly on denial of employer liability for accidents which arise out of risks personal to an employee. The First District Court of Appeal reviewed the case en banc, and ultimately agreed with Ms. Bogle overturning the lower Court’s decision and ultimately denying compensability of the case.
