What qualifies as a work related injury?
A work related injury is one that happens while clocked in - in the course of employment. [So, NEVER while commuting to work.] The injury must also happen within the scope of the worker's assigned duties. Get injured fighting a coworker in the workplace is not a work related injury. The injury must be diagnosed by a doctor, not merely claimed by the worker.
