Falls Are Common And Devastating Workplace Injuries
Slips, trips and falls often rank as one of the most common injuries workers experience while on the job. Even though falls do happen frequently, the actual outcome of this accident can vary widely. Some people may fall and walk away seemingly unharmed. In contrast, others will have a career-ending injury that leaves them feeling helpless. Injuries to soft tissue and delicate parts of the body, such as the brain, may not be immediately apparent after a fall.
Because of the wide range of outcomes in a fall accident, we urge hurt people to get the help they need. Many workers’ compensation insurance providers require injured employees to go to pre-selected doctors for evaluation. These health care workers often have an unspoken incentive to minimize injuries and encourage hurt workers to go back to work before they are ready. Insurance companies are a business, making more money when claims are minimized.
Our firm can help you get an independent medical evaluation and determine your next steps. Our lawyers have helped many clients get the compensation they need and deserve over their years of practice. We strive to handle everything related to our clients’ cases so they can focus on healing and moving forward.
