Fall Injuries in the Workplace
Slips or trips leading to falls are leading causes of major injuries, both in the general population and among workers. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 835 American employees were killed by fall-related accidents in 2007: an all-time high since 1992, when these statistics began to be kept. It is very important for workers and their employers to be aware of the dangers of these accidents and take reasonable steps to prevent them.
If you have been injured in a workplace fall, you should be eligible for fair compensation for medical expenses and missed work. Unfortunately, receiving the payments you need is not always easy. If you are experiencing any difficulty with the workers’ compensation system, call the workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
