Employee Injuries: What’s Covered Under the “Course and Scope” Rule?

AmTrust provides examples of times that claims may not be covered by a workers’ compensation policy, such as deviation from employment.

White Paper Summary

It’s an average day for employee Slip Trippy. While heading out for his lunch break, Mr. Trippy’s boss asks if he’d mind dropping off some invoices at the post office. After dropping off the mail, Mr. Trippy drives two miles to his favorite burger joint to pick up something for lunch. On his way however; he’s involved in a motor vehicle accident. It’s a common question I see as a claims professional overseeing more than 2,000 employers…. is he covered by his employer’s workers’ compensation insurance?
