Is Your Fall Covered Under Pennsylvania's Workers’ Compensation?

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, October 18, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Pennsylvania employees may not be aware of all of the hazards that are lurking in the corners of their workplaces. Fall-related injuries occur most in the construction industry, but every other industry has high rates of slip and fall accidents, many just are not as aware of them as they should be.


Falls in workplaces can occur frequently. The most common areas of work that are prone to falling are industrial workplaces, cleaning, building maintenance, commercial, healthcare, and extraction.


With the number of fatal falls going up each year, workers’ compensation claims have been more frequent too. The medical expenses and the time it may take for someone to recover from a work injury can be significant. Although many federal regulations have been implemented, there are still many safety concerns that cause injuries in the workplace. An example of this is when a company does not display wet floor signs after mopping the floor or spilling something.


Those that have been a part of a slip and fall injury in the workplace may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits may help one to receive compensation for their medical bills or a percentage of their lost wages.


A slip and fall injury at work can be the cause of a severe and life-threatening injury. There are several reasons a slip and fall injury can occur in a workplace. You may think that your injury is just because of your “clumsiness, ” but there are several regulations that the Occupational Safety Hazard Association (OSHA) puts into place that employers are supposed to follow and abide by in the workplace.
