I feel down a flight of stairs at work. Is this considered worker's comp?
It all depends where you are at when working. Did you get hurt while you where on the clock? Was the stairs in your company control? For instance if you where walking down the stairs such as fire stairs that could be considered outside the premises of the employer. But if you fell down while at work and the stairs are in control of the employer than you would be covered as work comp. I suggest you file just in case.

They'll pay for your medical bills and any lost time and yes, believe it or not - they normally pay for your clumsiness.

If you were on the clock, in most states this would be a workers comp loss. It would pay for medical bills. There isn't any "pain and suffering" payment with workers comp, though, if that's what you're thinking about.

If you were on the clock, on your way to clock in, or on your way out after clocking out it is worker's comp. If you were staying late off of the clock to talk to a friend or something then they do not have to foot the bill.
