What is not covered by workers’ compensation?
Workers’ compensation is designed to cover the payment of medical bills and other benefits that result from workplace injuries, caused by the nature of the work or workplace involved. Consequently, injuries from heart attacks, genetic conditions, self-impairment, after-hours socializing, and uncontrollable acts of nature are usually not covered. Of course, some of these things rely heavily on circumstance.
