If an employee is injured and claims that the injury arose out of and in the course of their employment, then in general, it will be considered as a statutory workers’ compensation claim. If an employee sues you, there may be coverage under the Employer’s Liability component of the workers’ compensation policy to provide defense and indemnity if the injury arose out of the course and scope of employment. In certain situations, if the employee sues a third party and then the third party sues you, the third party may also present an Employer’s Liability claim. Every claim is, of course, evaluated on an individual basis according to the applicable policy language and state law.
