Slip and fall accidents can and do occur in any workplace, from offices to factories. Every worker needs to be aware. In Denver and other Colorado communities, common causes of slip and fall accidents include:
- Slippery Surfaces. Spills and leaks can create slippery surfaces, increasing the risk of slip and fall accidents. In Denver and across Colorado, snow and other weather conditions can also create slippery conditions in workplaces, especially near entranceways.
- Uneven Walkways. Cracked or poorly maintained floors, stairs, and other surfaces can lead to unexpected falls.
- Cluttered Workspaces. Cluttered work areas can increase the likelihood of tripping and falling.
- Insufficient Lighting. Poor lighting can make it difficult for workers to see potential hazards, leading to accidents.
The good news is that if you’re injured in a slip and fall at your workplace, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, which can pay for medical care, replace part of your lost income, and otherwise help you get back on track financially after a devastating workplace injury.
The bad news is that filing a workers’ comp claim in Colorado can be complicated, and you’ll be filing when you’re in pain and dealing with an injury. In addition, some workers with legitimate claims find they struggle to get their rightful benefits because employers and insurers try to deny the claim or minimize the injury.
In these cases, working with an experienced Colorado workers’ compensation lawyer can help. Your attorney looks out for your best interests, negotiating with insurance companies and building a strong case for you. They take care of the details so you can focus on your health. They also have the experience and understanding of Colorado laws to seek benefits for you.
