NOWRA, Australia — A federal court has ruled that a woman who was injured while having sex during a business trip is eligible for worker’s compensation benefits.
The unidentified woman was hospitalized after a light fixture above her bed was torn loose and landed on her face, injuring her nose and mouth.
She claimed worker’s compensation for her physical and psychological injuries suffered during the mishap.
It is not yet clear how much compensation the woman will be paid, or when.
The case has been in dispute for five years and her employer plans to appeal the decision to the High Court, Australia’s highest legal authority.
