I work at a supermarket. I became injured after I slipped and fell on some liquid a customer dropped. Can I claim workers' compensation benefits to offset my medical bills?

Workers' compensation claims are filed when a worker is injured during the "course and scope" of their employment. This means that if they are performing tasks that their employer requests and become injured, they can file a claim regardless of the source of injury. In the grocery store case, an employee can file a claim even if their employer wasn't the one who posed the danger and they experienced a workplace accident.
