New York Slip and Fall Lawyers
Workers can be significantly injured when their employers don’t take enough precautions to stop slip and fall accidents. These accidents can lead to injuries such as brain and spinal damage, broken bones, and severe bleeding. In many cases, a greater attention to detail or the proper following of safety protocols could have prevented these injuries. If an employer doesn’t take these important steps to avoid accidents, they may be responsible for an injured employee’s treatment and recovery costs.

Causes of Slip and Fall Accidents at Work
Slip and fall accidents commonly occur because of oversight in cleaning or clearing off walkways. The following errors in this process may leave an employee with severe injuries from an accident:
- Failing to clear off ice or rain
- Failing to clean up chemical spills
- Failing to keep items cleared off of walkways
- Failing to clean up any leaks that could make walkways slick
These mistakes can easily lead to a slip and fall accident, as slick areas and items left on the ground can cause anyone to lose their footing. Considering how serious slip and fall accidents can prove in some instances, it’s particularly important for an injured worker to realize their options after an accident.
If your injuries were caused by your employer’s failure to following safety expectations, you may be entitled to sue for financial compensation for your injuries.
