Would this be compensable under Workers' Comp? First note that this took place in Australia, so my question whether it would be compensable under U.S. law is completely hypothetical.
A woman was sent one day to set up for a meeting to be held the next day in another city. That evening, while in her hotel, she engaged in some extra-curricular activity with a friend. During the sport a light fixture came loose, fell, and hit her in the face, causing injury. (Wow. Draw your own conclusions.)
She sued, claiming that she was in that position for work-related reasons. Here's the whole story.
I've seen claimants get comp benefits when they were injured in an after-work softball game, but this one might be going too far for U.S. courts.
