If I am injured away from the workplace, am I eligible for workers’ compensation benefits?
Pursuing a workers’ compensation claim for injuries that were sustained away from the job-site can often be complicated. In many cases, the insurance company will investigate the nature of the injury and even if you were at a work function, your claim may be denied if the injuries were not directly associated with your work performance. It is important to discuss the specifics of your situation with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
