Atlanta Workers’ Compensation Attorney – I Was Playing a Prank On a Co-Worker and Got Hurt, Do I Have A Workers’ Comp Claim in Georgia?

The short answer is no. If you are horse playing and are injured, the law looks at what you were doing, and horse playing is typically not in the course and scope of your employment. As such your claim is likely to be denied.

Other forms of misconduct which will result in a denied claim are, fighting, willful acts of third persons for personal reasons. Injuries related to alcohol or drugs will also typically be denied however it must be proven that the effects of the alcohol or drugs contributed to the injury.

For more information on your Georgia claim you should reach out to a Georgia workers’ compensation lawyer.
