Qualifying for Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation claims are made for injuries and illnesses that happen when performing job duties or which occur as a direct result of the employment agreement. An injured party would not have to prove negligence or carelessness of an employer since workers’ compensation allows you to receive benefits without determining fault.

However, workers’ compensation laws limit the amount you can receive. If an injured party understands that the benefits provided by workers’ compensation is not sufficient enough, and if the injury was directly caused by the employer’s negligent actions, they might try to sue with the help of an experienced and skilled personal injury attorney. If an injury was caused by the actions of a third party, such as another company that provides the work equipment, the injured party might be eligible to file a lawsuit against the respective company.

Common causes of slip and fall accidents include:

  • Wet and slippery floors
  • Cluttered floors and tripping hazards
  • Damaged floors
  • Damaged sidewalks
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Ditches and potholes
