If you fell down stairs in the work place you may be surprised at just how serious your injuries could be and just how drastically your life could change. All kinds of bone breaks, fractures and muscular problems can result for anyone who fell down stairs in the work place, and these kinds of injuries can cause a great deal of pain, as well as taking a long time to heal and creating a lot of longer term financial difficulties. These difficulties could arrive in the form of costly trips to hospitals and medical facilities, the need to make new travel arrangements if you cannot drive and even loss of earnings if you are unable to work for a long period of time. As such, the law states that anyone who does suffer in this way due to an accident which was not their fault deserves compensation to help to cover these kinds of costs.
What if you Fell Down Stairs in the Work Place?
Employers have a responsibility to make sure that your working environment is a safe and secure place and if they do not do so then they have let their staff down. As such, if you fell down stairs in the workplace because of failures of your employers, such as the lack of adequate handrails or the fact that trip hazards were left near staircases, then you are eligible to seek compensation for your injuries.
