Consequential Bodily Injury Suits

Definition

A type of lawsuit insured by the employers liability coverage of a workers compensation policy. In this type of legal action, a member of the injured worker's family purports to have an injury that directly results from the injury to the employee. Often, mental injuries are alleged. Legislative action in many states has narrowed the applicability of this type of lawsuit.
