Slip and Fall Accidents at the Workplace
Oftentimes, slip and fall accidents result from property owners who don’t maintain a safe environment for visitors, fail to warn them of hazards on their property, or neglect to take measures to prevent falls.
Neglecting to remove hazards such as not cleaning up spills, fixing loose handrails, broken steps, or uncleared debris can cause slip and fall accidents, but accidents at the workplace include additional hazards, such as:
- Oil and chemical spills that create slippery floors until they are cleaned up
- Dry spills of granules and powders
- Uncleared or falling debris, especially on construction sites
- Poor practice for training and safety
Legal Support After a Slip and Fall at the Workplace
When someone sustains an injury at work, they typically begin by filing a workers’ compensation claim. Many believe that they do not need an attorney, but this is far from the truth. Workers’ comp carriers often deny claims, reduce benefits, downplay injuries, and generally avoid paying in any way they can.
Additionally, workers’ comp benefits cover medical expenses and two-thirds of a worker’s average weekly pay; they do not cover any non-economic losses. A slip and fall lawyer in Anderson, SC, will guide you through the claims process and advise you on the right time to escalate your claim to a personal injury lawsuit.
Here are more ways that George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers can assist you after a slip and fall injury at your workplace:
- Claims process. We guide you through the claims process to reduce the chances that a workers’ comp carrier will deny your claim on a technicality.
- Investigation. We investigate your case to gather relevant information and documents for a lawsuit.
- Consultation. We consult with specialists who support your claim, prove negligence, and place a monetary value on your injuries.
- Negotiate. We negotiate with the insurance carrier so you get the best outcome for your situation.
- Litigate. We are prepared to aggressively litigate your case when the defense doesn’t want to offer full and fair compensation.
