Workplace Slip-And-Fall Accidents
Many New Jersey residents may not realize just how dangerous their workplaces are. The fact of the matter is that there are hazardous conditions that can affect almost any worker. Someone who is hurt on the job and unable to work for a while deserves to be compensated for his or her injury.
At our East Orange law offices, the attorneys at Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, understand that employees might get hurt in a workplace slip-and-fall accident. Such an incident could lead to broken bones, torn ligaments or other ailments that can keep employees at home, instead of at work. Our lawyers can assist people with their workers’ compensation claims to make sure that they are receiving a fair amount.
Premises Liability Cases Can Happen At Work
A parking lot that is icy, for example, can be just as dangerous for an employee of a business as it can for a customer. However, while a customer might have no qualms about seeking damages for injuries suffered in a slip-and-fall accident, an employee might be reluctant to do the same.
Workers’ compensation benefits are available for people who are hurt at work — even for those who slip and fall due to icy or dangerous conditions. It may take the intervention of an experienced workplace accidents attorney to help someone get the compensation that he or she deserves.
