Chip a tooth at work while eating a cookie, call it a work related injury.
In Sweden a court ruled in favor of 50 year old salesman Calle Montell, who claimed that a work related injury (chipping his tooth) was caused when he hate a cookie while working. While eating a cookie a customer had offered him, a cherry pit damaged his tooth. He filed for state compensation and was denied.
"The Swedish Supreme Administrative Court ruled in favor of a claim by Calle Montell for state compensation, saying the injury was work-related because it occurred while he was on the job."
Originally his local social insurance office denied his claim for $570 worth of damage/repair costs, insisting that the injury was not a work related event. Two courts heard the case before the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court issued its ruling in favor of Montell. Rulings by this court can not be appealed.
