At times, you may take part in activities with your employer that don’t fall between the normal “9-to-5″ work hours, such as a work softball league or a charitable event out in the community. What if you get injured?
Many employees don’t realize that they may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for their injury, if certain conditions are met.
For example, David Stern represented a registered nurse, who was injured while she was volunteering on a Sunday morning at a popular running event in Philadelphia, which was sponsored by her employer. Mr. Stern filed a Claim Petition on her behalf and she was awarded ongoing wage loss and medical benefits.
Whether your injury qualifies as being work-related is very fact specific, so you should speak with an attorney to go over the facts of your case.
