Workplace Accident Claim

In order to avail the benefits provided by workers’ compensation, you are required to prove that the injury or illness is related to your work. Rephrased in legal jargon, the unfortunate event must be “arising out of employment and occurring during the course of employment,” commonly abbreviated as AOE/COE. Know the rules that dictate whether or not an employee’s injury or illness is work-related and covered by the workers’ compensation.

personal injury workers comp claim

The AOE/COE requirements appear simple enough. However, many events that occur in the workplace can be of a dubious nature. Here we list down some common occurrences that may allow you to avail the benefits provided by the workers’ comp.

Events organized by the Company: Companies organize recreational events like picnics, games, parties from time to time. During such events if a worker is injured, the worker has the freedom to avail workers’ comp benefits. However, if the employer has explicitly told employees not to participate in such events, some states can make an exception and not provide the workers’ compensation benefits.

If, however, fooling around or breaking rules in the workplace is excused by the employer, or is a commonly accepted behavior in the workplace, the courts consider injuries sustained during such times as work-related injuries and workers’ compensation benefits can be availed.

Seek a lawyer

Many times a worker's injury or illness may be of a dubious origin, a gray area when it comes to understand worker's comp coverage. In these special circumstances, it is always worth seeking a lawyer’s expertise. The lawyer may be able to tell you whether or not you qualify for the benefits. As a lawyer is aware of your state laws he may be the best counsel in such matters.
