Whether an injury is compensable under worker's compensation is not a question for your wife's employer to decide. It is a question of law and fact which is governed by the relevant statutes dealing with worker's compensation.
You should contact a reputable worker's compensation attorney (we can recommend one) who will be able to advise you as to your rights and guide you through the process.
Please feel free to contact me privately to obtain the name of the attorney mentioned above.
