Do I need a lawyer for work injury?
When you’re injured in the workplace, it is important to have a lawyer by your side. The lawyers at Scher and Scher want to help secure our clients right to compensation. By law, buildings, stores, parking lots, and walkways must be maintained to ensure they can be safely traveled. This is a responsibility known as premises liability. In these kinds of lawsuits, the victim attempts to prove that their injuries are a result of negligence such as uneven floors, lack of warning signs, dim lighting, etc. In these lawsuits, the injured party must prove that the store owner was aware or should have been aware of their property’s dangerous condition, that there should have been a warning, and that the dangerous condition caused the victim to suffer injuries.
If you slip and fall while at work, you must remain calm as these situations may cause a feeling of panic from possible injuries. Assess the situation and look around you. What caused you to slip and fall? If you see potential causes such as a puddle of water, uneven flooring, dim lighting, etc., take photos, record your surroundings, and call the police. Upon police arrival, make them aware of your injuries and ask for medical attention. Even if your injuries seem minor, you do not want them to worsen with time.
What are your rights if you get injured at work?
Premises liability law covers work injuries by holding the property owner liable for any injuries a victim has sustained. Other factors such as the victim not practicing his/her own safety comes into play when a judge decides who is liable for a slip and fall. If the property where a victim suffered from injuries is found to be unkempt with improper maintenance, the property owner will be held liable. A judge may ask, “how long was the shopkeeper/property owner aware of the dangerous conditions of the facility?” Our team wants you to know your legal rights after a slip and fall!
