Falls At Work
Posted in Uncategorized on October 27, 2015
In order to obtain worker’s comp, an injured worker must show that the injury arose out of and in the course of employment. Sometimes, people fall at work causing injuries. Many times, people seemingly fall on an otherwise flat surface. While work comp is no-fault, in cases where there is an unexplained fall, the injured worker must still show that the fall was caused by a risk associated with or incidental to the job. Such examples would be cracks or oil in the parking lot or tripping over a chord. The mere fact of a fall is not enough to necessarily succeed in a work comp. claim.
