FL - privacy & medical records & HIPPA
#18
Cycler is right. There is nothing in the Florida WC law that allows an employer or insurance carrier to not pay a claim because it was "preventable". WC is "no fault" and as long as the injury was "arising out of, and in the course and scope" of your employment, it is covered!

There is a provision for a 25% reduction in benefits for failure to use a mandatory safety device but nothing that states a preventable injury is not covered.
