Fighting For Workers’ Comp For Health Care Employees
Hospital employees face some unique health issues. They are exposed to the possibility of hepatitis C and other infectious diseases. Some nurses and nurses’ assistants suffer back and joint injuries caused by repeated lifting of patients. Job pressures and the desire to provide a high standard of care place additional stress on these workers, which can aggravate injuries.
The workers’ compensation system provides medical care and disability benefits for hospital employees who are injured while on the job, but many injured health care workers still face pushback when trying to collect benefits.
Some hospitals in Western Pennsylvania take an aggressive stance regarding workers’ compensation claims. These hospitals and their insurance carriers often deny legitimate claims or attempt to force injured employees back to work by minimizing the extent of injuries. If you are a hospital employee who has been injured while on the job, you may need a workers’ compensation attorney on your side.
