A: More facts are needed but it could be both depending on the relationship(s) but here are the basics: If the worker is a employee of the company (as opposed to a contract worker), then the worker should have a workman's comp claim against his employer. Additionally, the worker might have a claim against your Mom (and/or the owner of the house) for the slip and fall----so, yes this would be a potential claim against the homeowner's policy.
