Does Workers’ Comp Cover Slip-And-Fall Accidents?

If you have suffered workplace injuries in this type of accident, you can count on our attorneys and our legal team to help you get the medical benefits, wage benefits and other workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to. For decades, we have stood up for the rights of workers in Buffalo and throughout western New York who have suffered head injuries, back injuries, wrist injuries, sprained ankles and other injuries in slip-and-fall accidents at work.
What Caused The Slip-And-Fall Accident?
Slip-and-fall accidents are typically the result of spills in the workplace. They also may be caused by leaks. Claims may also involve ice, snow or rain accumulation in workplace entranceways or on work grounds. Trip-and-fall accidents in the workplace are also common. These may be caused by debris or objects left in walkways, such as parts or tools.
The accident did not have to occur on the work site for you to be eligible for workers’ compensation. As long as the accident occurred during the scope of work duties, you can get benefits. For example, a delivery driver who slips and falls and suffers a serious injury while making a delivery is eligible for workers’ compensation.
