Workplace Slip-and-Fall Accidents
When you have been injured in a slip-and-fall accident while at work, you need an advocate on your side who only has your interests at heart. While your employer and its insurance company may be seeking to save money and protect themselves from legal exposure, the attorneys of Avera & Smith will fight on your behalf to build your case and get you the compensation you need to pay medical bills and make up for lost wages.
Slip-and-fall accidents routinely result in major injuries. Because the human body hits the ground with such force, slips and falls in the workplace can often involve brain trauma and spinal cord injuries. We understand how to handle these matters, both as premises liability claims and as workers’ compensation matters.
