Australian Compo Paid To Woman Injured During Sex


Australian Compo Benefits For Woman Injured During Sex

Australian Compo is paid out on a very questionable claim.

Picture Of Businesswoman Australian Compo Pulls Male Coworker Towards Her With His Tie

 An Australian woman is injured during sex at a hotel. Believe it or not, the judge ruled that this is the same as watching TV or taking a shower. I am not sure of the whole story. It seems a lamp on the wall was the cause of the injury that involved what it looks to be disfigurement. Read the story here.

Australian Workers Comp benefits are called compo. The comments of her companion are interesting. I thought this was a joke when I first read it. It was not likely a joke to the government agency that was her employer. The claim was filed in 2007.

The woman was a government worker that is covered 24 hours a day according to the judge’s ruling.  There are many strange files where benefits have been awarded for what looks to be deniable claims.

The case is not over yet as it has been appealed to Australia’s highest court.   I will advise on any updates if the woman actually receives Australian Compo.

Update – the Australian Supreme Court ruled against the claimant.
