Slip-And-Fall Accidents In The Workplace
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault compensation program, which means that it pays benefits regardless of who was at fault. You do not have to prove that another person was negligent in creating the property condition that caused you to slip and fall to receive benefits such as medical care and disability payments.
If your employer has denied your claim for benefits or stopped your benefits before you feel ready to return to work, contact our lawyers as soon as possible. We will work to reinstate your benefits as quickly as possible.
Can I Sue My Employer?
Sometimes slip-and-fall accidents are caused by negligent property conditions, such as wet or slippery floors, spills, loose carpeting, uneven steps, or other defects. While employers are generally protected from being sued by employees for injuries, third-parties are not. Examples of third parties in slip-and-fall accident cases include property owners (if different from the employer) and contractors responsible for maintaining the property.
