Pursuing Compensation For Health Care Worker Injuries
Health care workers are at risk for all manner of workplace injuries and occupational illnesses. Unpredictable patients, heavy lifting, heavy workloads and other potential hazards can result in serious harm.
If you have been hurt while working in the health care field, it is important to pursue the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled. The attorneys at Sher, Herman, Bellone & Tipograph, have been helping workers in New York recover the compensation they deserve for more than 70 years. We are prepared to put our experience to work for you.
We Handle All Workplace Injury Claims
Our lawyers have devoted their legal practice exclusively to workers’ compensation issues. We represent doctors, nurses and other health care professionals who have suffered all types of workplace injuries, including those involving:
- Lifting injuries
- Illnesses contracted from needle sticks
- Assault by patients
Hospitals and other health care organizations may try to shift the blame when a worker is hurt on the job. For example, they may claim that proper lifting techniques were not utilized or a worker should not have run to respond to a call for help. It is important to keep in mind that the workers’ compensation system does not take fault into account. Even if you were 100% to blame for your accident, if it occurred while you were performing a job-related duty, you are entitled to workers’ comp benefits.
