Slips, Trips, and Falls

Slips, Trips, and Falls

Slips, trips, and falls accounts for over 27.4% of all workplace injuries. Weather conditions can make roads or floors icy and dangerous. However, this is not limited to people who work exclusively outdoors. In 2017, cases of workplace injuries for falls in hospitals grew by almost 7%. An example of why this would occur includes if an area is mopped without proper slip signage being put up.

Slips, trips, and falls can occur on the job from many factors such as poor lighting, slippery floors, and more. Regardless of who’s ‘fault’, it is that you fell, you are entitled to workers’ compensation for slips, trips, and falls that occur in the workplace and result in injury or your inability to return to work. Working with an attorney Florida that specializes in workers’ compensation claims in West Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie will ensure you receive all of the compensation you are entitled to.

When it comes to your workplace environment, your safety should never be put in jeopardy. Workplace injuries may feel insignificant at the moment, but they can have long-term effects. The injury can worsen over time, or the dangerous incident may occur again, putting you in risk once more. There was a total of 5,147 fatal workplace injuries in the United States in 2017. If you feel unsafe or have been injured, it’s important to consult with a lawyer.

At the very least, you should not be returning to work the next day after your injury. Returning to work can cause the injury to get more severe, or you may be put in harm’s way again. Florida workers’ compensation laws have been made to cover medical bills and disability leave for workers who have been hurt on the job.
