Falling off a ladder is in the scope of my employment? A claim was filed when I fell off the ladder I just did not file another claim or report that I was still in pain.

If the use of the ladder at work was to perform your job responsibilities, and you fell off the ladder while you were working, then the fall is considered to have occurred within the course and scope of your employment. This means, you claim is probably limited to a worker's compensation claim. Again, I urge you to consult with an attorney that specializes in worker's compensation matters. Do so immediately to avoid prejuding your rights, such as with the runing of the statute of limitations. Also, I again urge you to immediately consult with an employment attorney concerning the termination of your employment. I do not handle worker's compensation or employment matters. Best of luck!
