An added note to the Brazil Claim

As an afterthought, if Mr. Brazil’s claim cannot be paid by FMIT under Workers Compensation, talk to the adjuster about placing it under Employer’s Liability, Part 2 of Workers Compensation.

 
The purpose of employers liability is to protect the employer from suits brought against them or on their behalf by employees who suffered work related claims separate and distinct from any other claim for Workers Compensation Benefits.   Workers Comp is primary but if they will not pay, Mr. Brazil has a right under the law.    The Department of Financial Services will also assist.
 
This has gone on too long and my understanding is that Mr. Brazil’s health insurance took care of some of the expense since it should not have.  Had his health insurance company been told that the incident happened because of a work related injury, his health insurance company would have subrogated against FMIT.  (Usually the health insurance company would have denied the claim and placed it under FMIT by calling the Town) So FMIT is fortunate and should just pay the balance of the claims.
