Slip, Trip and Fall
Helping injured workers in Philadelphia
Slip, trip and fall accidents are common in workplaces, and workers can be left seriously injured as a result. The Law Offices of Richard A. Jaffe, LLC has handled well over a thousand cases involving injured workers. Workers’ compensation attorney Jaffe knows how to help injured workers get the benefits they need and deserve after a work accident.
Workers who have been hurt in a slip-and fall or trip-and-fall accident may need treatment that involves surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy and rest. They may also be unable to work for some time. In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to cover the cost of treatment and provide partial wages. But the claims process can be difficult.
- Slip, trip and fall accidents can happen at any kind of workplace. The types of accidents that can leave workers injured may involve:
- Ice, rain or snow on a loading dock or parking lot
- Warped or uneven flooring
- Torn carpets
- Cluttered or poorly maintained stairways
- Exposed cords on the floor
- Poorly lit work areas or hallways
- Spilled fluids
When a worker is hurt, workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to help. But insurance companies try to limit the benefits injured workers receive. And employers may even question whether the injury was work-related. They each have lawyers on their side, looking out for their best interests.
