Litigation after a slip-and-fall accident at work

Legal action can arise over a number of incidents in the workplace, from allegations that an employee was sexually harassed to discrimination. However, when a worker becomes injured, the accident can create challenges for both the injured worker and the company which employs them. In some instances, an employer may even face litigation following a workplace accident, such as a slip-and-fall incident. Moreover, an employer may run into problems as a result of other violations related to the accident, such as retaliating over an employee’s workers’ comp claim or refusing to permit an employee to seek medical attention.

Employers should keep an eye out for any potential problem areas in the workplace. For example, if certain hazards are constantly present in a particular area, whether someone is failing to do their job or there is some other risk (such as a leaky pipe creating a wet surface), this should be addressed at once. Slip-and-fall accidents can create a wide variety of hardships for workers and those they love, whether an injury causes physical pain, lost wages, or other challenges. Moreover, an employee missing work because of an injury can also be problematic for the company as a whole.

When it comes to work accidents, prevention is paramount. Unfortunately, these incidents cannot always be prevented. For businesses facing litigation over a slip-and-fall accident or any other type of work-related injury, recognizing legal rights and carefully addressing the situation is essential.
