Handling slip-and-fall accidents at work

Regardless of your line of work, a number of risks may be present every day you head into your work space. If you work in the construction industry, you may have to watch out for falling debris and potentially hazardous equipment. On the other hand, those who work in office spaces may suffer an injury due to repetitive motions. At Angiuli & Gentile, we also know that many workers in New York have been hurt after slipping and falling down. As a result, it is especially important for employers and workers in all industries to try and prevent these accidents from occurring.

As an employee, you should always be vigilant and report any potential hazards you notice, such as water that is dripping from a leaky pipe. Whether you work in a grocery store, a construction zone or any other work space, there are many reasons why floors become slippery or hazards increase the risk of a worker falling down.

If you are hurt because you fell down, all sorts of hardships may lie ahead. You may be going through financial problems because of your medical expenses or an inability to continue performing your job responsibilities. With physical pain and other challenges, you may face difficulties moving forward. It is essential for you to take advantage of any tools that can help you recover. For example, workers’ compensation may give you benefits that you are counting on, such as help with job training, your medical bills and monetary compensation.
