Let me tell you a story. It wont take long, I promise.
One day I was walking down the street. That’s it, just walking. The clouds were big and puffy, the sun peeped through every now and then. What a beautiful day it was. Then it happened. Suddenly! I was falling, what the? I thought. The sidewalk was just barely uneven in one spot. Luckily I caught myself before I hit the ground. Whew, that was close!
Simple accidents happen like this every day. As a business, they can come with hefty consequences. The company, provided they have the proper Liability Insurance, will be responsible to cover all medical expenditures, pay for the time the employee may be out and unable to complete their job duties, AND don’t even get me started on the paperwork! While we all hope the employee makes a safe and speedy recovery, what a headache for everyone involved!
Avoid the headache; protect your employees and company.
