There is a strange story about an Austrian woman who suffered some bad injuries, because she was making love to a male friend of hers while on a business trip. And the story got even stranger because it appears that she finally won the case when suing her employer for booking her the hotel.
What exactly was this all about – This lady was working for a federal government agency, so she was sent on a business trip and her employer booked her a hotel. While being there, she met a male friend of hers and at the end of the evening they decided to go to her room and have some fun. But while they were in bed, the glass light fitting above it broke, fell down and hurt her face and mouth badly. Because of that, the woman got into depression and was not able to go back to work.
Initially her first case was rejected with the reason that it did not happen during her official working duty. But her second appeal before the Federal Court was in her favour. The third appeal was held by the insurer, refusing to agree with the court’s decision but it was not supported.
The judge said that regarding the activity she was involved with, she should get compensation. The activity was not of such great importance, because if she was playing cards for example she would get the compensation that she deserved.
