The holidays are supposed to be a time of fun, relaxation and spending time with friends and family. Many people celebrate work parties by having a get together at the office or at a destination like a bar or restaurant. But what happens if you are hurt? Who is responsible if it is after normal hours at your office? What about if it is at a restaurant? You are there because if work, but are they responsible for your injuries?

When you are involved in this type of injury, it can be tricky as to whether another party is responsible for your injuries. Some questions that need to be answered are:

  • Was attendance voluntary?
  • Was attendance required to improve moral?
  • Was attendance part of a networking event?
  • Was injury due to lack of safety at the venue?
  • Was injury caused by another coworker?
