(Scroll down for video) A woman fought with her insurance company for many years after they refused to pay her workers compensation, claiming that her sexual activity is not business related and therefore not covered by her policy, according to court proceedings.
The Australian court has decided that the lawmaker, who was injured while having sex on a business trip is eligible for workers compensation benefits.
The Full Federal Court ruled in favor of the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and rejected the appeal of the federal insurer, ending a five-year legal battle.
The woman was hospitalized after being wounded during sex with a friend while staying at a motel in the town of Nowra, 100 miles south of her hometown of Sydney.
During sex, a glass lamp was ripped from its mount above the bed and fell on her face, injuring her nose and mouth. She later suffered from depression and could no longer work for the government.
