A: This should be a workers comp issue. The injured party needs to consult with a workers comp hearings asap. The company's response of no fault is not correct and they should be telling the injury party to seek a workers comp claim. You can use the find a lawyer feature of this site to look for workers comp attorneys in your area.

A: Business pip is wrong. It is a no fault. Workers comp, plus business pip may have to cover some of what comp doesn't cover. However employee should contact a member of the Fla Justice Assn--they give free consults.
