The claimant in Donna Slater v. Palm Beach County School District fell down the stairs at their place of work. They were taken to the hospital but the employer denied their claim since they received no follow-up medical care.
The claimant was unable to explain why they had fallen down the stairs, and the Valcourt-Williams decision was considered to determine that the claimant did not meet the burden of establishing compensability.
Compensation for medical care and treatment DENIED
Attorney fees DENIED
