While you do not have to be at your workplace physically when an injury takes place in order to collect workers’ compensation benefits, you do need to be engaged in a work-related activity to successfully file a workers’ comp claim. For example, if you are injured while traveling to or from work or if you are injured while on a business trip, you may be able to receive workers’ comp for your accident and injury. Likewise, if you are injured during a mandatory job-related social function, you may be eligible to collect workers’ comp benefits.
