Highlighted Slip & Fall: Office Building
Many Floridians in one of our many corporate parks, meaning many of us spend the lion’s share of our week inside office buildings. Due to the extensive hours spent in these buildings, we expect to be provided with safe working environments. If this isn’t the case and you sustain an injury in your office building due to negligence you may be able to file a lawsuit.
While many have heard the phrase “you cannot sue your employer”, this doesn’t mean you won’t have recourse to be compensated for your injuries. Workers’ compensation will help you recover for lost wages, medical bills and future restrictions due to an accident if your employer is responsible – but what should you do if the accident happens at work at your employer isn’t at fault?
A slip and fall accident in an office building may be due to negligence by the building’s landlord or management company, a security guard or contractors working inside of the building. With so many people responsible for the safety of those within office buildings, it is imperative that you contact a lawyher to help figure out who is to blame for an accident so you get properly compensated for your injuries!
