No. You're covered by worker's comp if you're injured in the course of performing your duties as specifically related to your job. A fight isn't going to be covered.

Can you collect benefits after being fired if you are injured on the job?

The answer is yes, but expect the insurance company to fight you tooth and nail.

What was worker compensation passed for?

The underlying rationale for worker's compensation is to provide a method for workers to resolve tort claims more easily with their employers. The resolution is for mutual benefit since the worker can get more immediate compensation for his injuries and the employer does not have to fight a risky tort action in court that can easily drain tens of thousands of dollars out of the company as well as get negative publicity.

Can your employer fire you when you are on worker's compensation?

Generally, no, if you are on Workers' Compensation because of a work-related injury, it is illegal for your employer to punish or fire you for having a job injury, or for filing a workers' compensation claim when you believe your injury was caused by your job. If you feel your job is threatened, find someone who can help. Note that there are deadlines for taking action to protect your rights. However, while the employer cannot fire you BECAUSE you are on WC, but can fire you for other reasons. Bob and Sam get in a fistfight at work, contrary to published rules, and Bob already on a written warning. Bob gets injured in the fight and draws WC benefits. Bob also gets fired for fighting and violation of the previous discipline. No WC law violation. Trucker Jim gets in an injury accident driving the company's truck drunk. He get WC benefits and he gets fired. And prosecuted for DWI. No WC law violation WC is not a shield against getting disciplined and fired when you deserve it.
