Workers’ compensation carriers, Accident Fund Insurance Company of America and United Heartland, report that during last year’s difficult Midwest winter, slips and falls on ice and snow accounted for nearly one-third of all workers’ compensation claims that resulted in lost time from work. The insurers said winter-related slips and falls claims doubled in 2013-2014 over the previous year, representing 29 percent of all workers’ compensation claims.
