  Hospital Workers and Nursing Injuries
   

Hospitals, clinics and other medical health facilities are places of recovery from disease and injury, but for hospital workers, nursing staff and other medical professionals, they can be places where accidents happen that lead to serious injuries. When these accidents occur, hospital workers may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits that will help them pay for medical treatment and assist them in the recovery process. At the Barnett Law Firm attorney Hank Barnett represents hospital workers, including nurses, doctors, nursing assistants and other staff, in workers’ compensation claims and appeals. Obtaining workers’ compensation benefits for workers in this industry can be complex, and an experienced nursing injuries lawyer can help make sense of the laws and regulations in workers’ compensation.

In addition to hospital workers, we also represent workers from assisted living facilities, nursing homes and other elder care facilities, as well as home health care aides.

Occupational Disease and Hospital Workers’ Injuries

Nursing assistants, aides and other staff are frequently at risk for injuries in health care facilities, due to the physical and intense nature of their jobs.

Hospital workers are also at a higher risk of contracting occupational diseases, since they are around illness and disease on a frequent basis, despite safety measures that are supposed to protect workers. These occupational diseases can range in type and severity, but most will have adverse effects for those who have been exposed and may limit those workers’ ability to perform their regular job duties.

Recognizing occupational disease and proving that it was contracted on the job, thus qualifying the infected individuals for workers’ compensation benefits, can be complex, but an experienced advocate can improve the chances of obtaining the necessary compensation for medical treatment and other expenses.

After you have suffered an injury in a hospital or other medical facility, it is important for you to understand your rights to workers’ compensation and the application and appeals processes
