I was working in my classroom on Thursday - it was a contract day for me, but not many other people were there. I slid a couple of times, but never could find anything on the floor. Then our secretary came in to get something and my feet completely slid out from under me - I fell forward, landing on one knee and catching myself on a chair. She was shocked, but just asked if I was okay and then left. My husband came a few minutes later to get our son and he found a big puddle in the floor, so he went to ask the custodian if they had mopped without me knowing it. She ended up calling her supervisor, who called the district safety manager. I gave her a verbal statement - and she said it was because I had on flip-flops with no tread on them and that I should never wear those to work. I probably shouldn't (although I have NEVER slid in them before) but I reminded her that there was a huge puddle in the floor. She said on Monday, when everyone will be back at school for inservice, I will have to talk to her again and fill out a report. My knee is not bruised but still hurts when I walk on it 2 days later. I'm only a 3rd year teacher - never had anything like this happen. Is it a huge deal to file workman's comp if I do feel like I need to go to the doctor? Does it look bad on me? I feel like she was blaming me b/c of my shoes, but if the floors are wet, I would have fallen anyway probably!
