Workmen’s Compensation – Requirement of Causal Connection Between Employment and Injury
Plaintiff-employee was compensated for injuries received when she slipped on a patch of ice and fell on defendant-employer’s premises while going from her work to eat lunch in defendant’s cafeteria. On appeal, held, reversed. At the time of the injury plaintiff was not rendering any service to her employer. There was no causal connection between employment and injury, and the injury did not arise out of and in the course of her employment as required by statute. Mack v. Reo Motors, Inc., 345 Mich. 268, 76 N.W. (2d) 35 (1956).
