Let’s give you an example: You are a young person in college, delivering pizza for some cash. It is a cold day and there is melting snow on the ground. You drive to your customer’s house and go to ring the doorbell. Except, without noticing the frozen sheet of ice, you slip and fall directly onto your knees instead of reaching the bell. Is there a crime here? Depending on how badly you are injured, the answer to this question is yes.

Slip and Fall

There is a slip and fall case here. This means that you were injured because of there was a failure to warn or clean up something that can potentially be dangerous. In the example above, the homeowner failed to put ice melt down on their porch to prevent a fall from occurring. If you were able to document the fall with either a trip to the hospital or with your work, you may be able to get compensation for your injury.

Worker’s Comp

If for whatever reason the slip and fall case fails, there is also a case here for worker’s compensation. Although you were on someone else’s property, you were still on the clock at the pizza place. Federal law requires business to provide worker’s comp for its employees for just this reason. If the fall made it hard for you to drive or walk, you would be without an income for the length of your recovery. With worker’s comp, you would be able to get a supplement for your lack of income.
