In most cases, the answer is no. If you were injured while you were intoxicated it is more than likely presumed that your intoxication impaired your judgment and the fault of your accident was not your employer’s, but your own.
If you are intoxicated, however, and the passenger in a vehicle that is struck while you are on the job, you could receive benefits as the cause of the accident is in no way related to your intoxication.
