Can I get workmans comp if I fell while leaving work? Posted on February 07, 2011

I work at a restaurant. I had just clocked out and was on my way out the door and when I stepped off the rug outside of the door my foot hit the concrete walkway and feet came out from under me. I fell hard, and immediately jumped up (scared someone saw me fall.) As soon as I got in the door and sat down I felt a sharp pain on the opposite side of my body than I fell on. I am pretty sore already and it is only been an hour. I am just wondering if I need it if I'm eligible for workmans comp.
