- Insurer: St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Co.
WILSON, J. The insurer appeals from a decision that awarded the employee workers’ compensation benefits for HIV treatment that the judge concluded was causally related to a needle stick he sustained while working. Because the medical evidence falls far short of establishing it was more probable than not that the needle stick caused the employee’s HIV infection, we reverse the decision.
