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.
