Recently there was a workers comp claim that made headlines. A waiter filed a claim after he choked on a quesadilla at work and injured his esophagus. His claim was denied because the insurance company did not feel his eating of the quesadilla was part of his job function. The waiter’s lawyers appealed the denial with the stance that the waiter was testing he quesadilla to be able to recommend the dish to his customers. His claim was still denied as the insurance company still refused to accept his injuries happened as a result of completing his job functions.
