Kashiefory McKenzie v. Big Blue Ocean, Dependable Warehousing and Distribution, Service American Indemnity Company, and Illinois National Insurance Company was a Florida workers compensation case regarding whether Service American owed coverage.
During the case, the first petition alleged the employer was Dependable Warehousing, and the carrier was Service American. However, a second petition was filed claiming that the employer was Big Blue and the carrier was Illinois National. Therefore, Service American claimed that they were not responsible for providing coverage.
The claimant attempted to use a state webpage as evidence, but it was considered unauthenticated. The affidavit of the adjuster was accepted, and the JCC ruled that no coverage existed.
Carrier’s motion GRANTED; Service American Indemnity Company DISMISSED
