Slips, trips, and falls are some of the most common causes of injuries in the workplace. Slip and trips give way to falls in the work environment that can cause serious injury and put you out of work for some time. If this occurs, you are likely entitled to a workers’ compensation claim. Other falls that occur without a trip or a slip, resulting in injury, may also give you entitlement to a workers’ compensation claim as well. What’s important to remember is that workers’ compensation is considered a “no fault” system, meaning that it doesn’t matter who or what was at fault, if you have obtained an injury while on the clock you have the right to certain compensation.
If you believe that you are entitled to a workers’ compensation claim due to a slip, trip, or fall, but aren’t sure how to go about it, contact Brooks Injury Law here.
