Australian Woman Claims sex accident is work related
This recent news article caught my eye so it makes for a good read. I am posting it here without any further comment other than to say that most of us in the field have had unusual situations that require research to assess if an injury could be considered compensable. Never let it be said that the law is boring! Those traveling for a company or stationed at some distance from their home are not simply limited to asserting a claim for injuries sustained during working hours. The average employee goes home and has his own time in his own home but when you are stationed elsewhere other factors may apply. Here this young lady in Australia was having sex in her hotel room when the activity caused an accident resulting in injury. Workers comp? In Colorado and elsewhere you should review the law for that jurisdiction.
