If I fell while working, am I eligible to file workers’ compensation claim?

Potentially, yes. If you are an employee (not an independent contractor), workers’ compensation will most likely cover your work-related injury. Workers’ compensation provides “no fault” benefits for employees’ injuries, which means that your employer (or their insurance company) must pay whether or not your employer was to blame for your fall.

If you can file a workers’ compensation claim after an injury at work, you may also be able to file a premises liability claim. For example, if your employer leases the facility where you work, the property owner could be fully liable for your losses.
