Helping Health Care Workers Hurt on the Job
Nurses, doctors, orderlies, certified nurse’s aides, and health care workers of all kinds are at the front lines of our medical system. With an aging population, health care workers are increasingly important, but are also subject to new and dangerous risks. At CT Injury Lawyers, we have over 20 years of experience helping sick or injured health care workers get the workers’ compensation and support they need.
As a health care worker, you are exposed to injury risks, diseases, and infections few others will ever face. At CT Injury Lawyers, our workers’ compensation attorney specialists know what you’re going through and are here to help.
Protecting Health Care Workers in Their Time of Need
According to recent figures, healthcare is the most dangerous industry for injuries and illnesses, with almost a million nurses, aides, orderlies and others injured or falling ill every year. Even worse, 45% of all days lost from violence in the workplace happen in health care. Our attorneys have seen the challenges faced in health care jobs and know how to get you the workers’ compensation settlement you need.
Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys are ready to help you if you’ve been sickened or injured in a hospital, nursing home, home care, hospice, or medical clinic job. We know that health care workers are exposed to special risks, including:
- Needle sticks
- Moving patients
- Restraining struggling patients
- Assault by a patient
- Exposure to diseases and dangerous chemicals
- Accidents in a patient's home
Nurses, home helpers, nursing home employees, orderlies, and assistants face these risks every day, resulting in neck injuries, repetitive stress injuries, or illness. In extreme cases, injuries can result in knees and other joint injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Our health care injury attorneys are here to help you or a loved one with a workers’ compensation claim.
