Slip And Fall Accidents At Work
If you suffer a slip and fall accident at work, you will have to follow the state’s worker’s compensation laws to seek damages. You will likely have to file the claim through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company. However, if a third party caused the injuries or if you were working as a contractor instead of an employee, you can file a civil claim. A civil claim will allow you to recover non-economic damages as a result of your slip and fall injury.
How Much Can Victims Recover?
You might be eligible to recover economic and non-economic damages when you file a slip and fall claim in South Florida. The amount you recover depends on the extent of your injuries, the treatment cost, your long-term needs, and how much time you lost from work. Also, you might be able to recover more if the property owner had an ongoing issue that he or she refused to address. The court might choose to punish someone who acted egregiously and put you and others at risk.
