Why was my workers’ compensation denied?

You get injured on the job. After filing a claim for workers’ compensation, you learn that your claim was denied because of the injury you sustained. How can that be? You were at work when the injury occurred, and therefore should be compensated for it, right?

Well, not exactly. There are some rare instances that workers’ compensation do not cover on-the-job injuries. Keep in mind that workers’ compensation was created to benefit injured workers, even in cases of carelessness by you or your employer. But even the law has some limits. You may have been denied benefits if you were involved in the following situations:
  • Your injury was self-inflicted (example, you were injured after starting a fight with a fellow co-worker)
  • You committed a serious crime, causing your injury
  • You were not on the job at the time of your injury
  • You were injured after violating company policy
