In the State of Pennsylvania, there are certain circumstances where a work injury would be excluded from being covered under the Workers Compensation Act. These exclusions, defined by statute, include an intentionally self-inflicted injury, an injury or death caused by the employee’s violation of law, an injury or death caused by the employee’s violation of a positive order, an injury caused by the act of a 3rd party intending to injure an employee because of reasons personal to the 3rd party and not directed against the employee because of the employment, and injuries caused by the injured employee’s intoxication.
