Workers' compensation for those employed in the medical field

Working in the medical industry comes with certain risks. Doctors and nurses are often exposed to dangerous diseases, contagious illnesses and may even suffer physical injuries while on duty. Those who have suffered from physical injuries while treating patients have certain rights, including the right to workers' compensation benefits. 

Doctors and nurses can suffer specific injuries while lifting or moving a heavy patient. Back injuries, damage to the spine and lingering pain may seem like normal risks for those employed in a high-risk industry, but workers can always benefit from becoming closely familiar with their rights. California health care workers of all kinds are eligible for benefits after an on-the-job injury. 

Many hospitals and health care facilities discourage deserving workers from filing a claim out of concern that their compensation insurance rates may increase. If a worker has been injured, he or she has the right to file a claim, even if goes against the wishes of the employer. In these circumstances, it can be useful to have a legal ally who is familiar with the rights of workers and the workers' compensation system in California. 

Our firm supports those who have suffered on the job and faced difficulty navigating the workers' compensation system. After a work accident, victims have the right to have their medical costs compensated and to seek a full financial recovery. We know that it can be difficult to focus on recovery while fighting for rightful benefits, which is why we are dedicated to the needs of all health care employees. Any injured employee can seek a case evaluation and also seek additional information on our website
