In the case of Alejandro Fernandez v. Techno Cable Wiring and MSA Group, the claimant suffered an injury and was transported to the hospital for treatment. His medical care continued and shortly after one of his doctor’s visits, he was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation and transported for further treatment.
Following the case of Spacal v. Marietta, the claimant argued that injuries occurring from authorized medical treatment were compensable. However, medical records provided to the JCC proved that his Atrial Fibrillation was not related to the work injury. In accordance with Urban v. Morris Drywall Spray, the claimant would only be authorized treatment if the condition interfered with or impeded recovery of said work injury.
