The man won big after the court on Wednesday, December 8 ruled that he is entitled to compensation following the accident.

“The plaintiff suffered an accident at work when he fell on the way to his home office in the morning,” the court said.

The court insisted the man got injured while on a commute along an insured work route as he went to work (home office) from his bedroom located one floor below.

The case was heard at a lower social court that deemed the journey to be an insured work route

However, a regional social court said it was an uninsured preparatory act that only precedes the actual activity and deemed the injury to be ineligible for insurance claims.

The higher federal social court, on the other hand disagreed with the regional social court and insisted the journey the man took was the first one undertaken to begin work.
