Is the claim compensable? Injury is the obvious starting point of any workers’ compensation claim. Yet depending on the circumstances, the question of whether or not it is actually compensable often requires careful analysis. This text provides an in-depth discussion of this complex topic. It presents all of the applicable statutes and judicial doctrines in a straightforward and easy-to-understand fashion. There are plenty of examples and no stone is left unturned. Chapter 5: Injury is excerpted from Sullivan on Comp: Michael Sullivan on California Workers’ Compensation Law, a comprehensive treatise slated for publication in January 2011. Sullivan on Comp will be a resource for the claims professional on every aspect of California workers’ compensation law. Beginning in 2011, the print edition will be released each January and will be jointly available online at www.workcompcentral.com.
