Under some circumstances, a claimant may receive worker’s compensation benefits if they were not on the employer’s premises but were traveling for the benefit of the employer.  Generally speaking, if a worker is sent by the employer to perform business in locations different from the employer’s premises, almost anything that happens to them while traveling would be the basis for a worker’s compensation claim.  The worker will not receive benefits, however, if they have a significant deviation from the employer’s activities or if they are injured while on a strictly personal errand.
