compensable injury

  • 1.

    "Compensable injury" does not include:

    (A) Injury to any active participant in assaults or combats which are not connected to the job assignment and which amount to a deviation from customary duties;

    (B) Injury incurred while engaging in or performing, or as the result of engaging in or performing, any recreational or social activities primarily for the worker's personal pleasure; or

    (C) Injury the major contributing cause of which is demonstrated to be by a preponderance of the evidence the injured worker's consumption of alcoholic beverages or the unlawful consumption of any controlled substance, unless the employer permitted, encouraged or had actual knowledge of such consumption.

    (c) A "disabling compensable injury" is an injury which entitles the worker to compensation for disability or death. An injury is not disabling if no temporary benefits are due and payable, unless there is a reasonable expectation that permanent disability will result from the injury.

    (d) A "nondisabling compensable injury" is any injury which requires medical services only.
