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?
- 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
