Compensability of WV Work Release Inmate Workers' Comp Claim Rejected

Many people wonder whether inmates who are injured while on work release are entitled to recover workers' compensation. In West Virginia (WV), the typical legal answer applies: It depends. In fact the WV Supreme Court of Appeals recently addressed the compensability of an inmate workers' comp claim for a work release inmate who was performing work for a state agency when he was injured. The case is Crawford v. West Virginia Department of Corrections.
