Recovering from a slip-and-fall accident at work

Workplace accidents happen in all sorts of ways, from falling off of a ladder on a construction site to sustaining a serious burn while working in an office. Likewise, slip-and-fall accidents happen for many reasons, whether someone falls down on ice while walking along the sidewalk or they slip on something that was spilled on the floor of a retail store. Sometimes, people are involved in slip-and-fall accidents while they are working, and these accidents can be tough for various reasons.
