Every seven seconds a worker is injured on the job. Healthcare workers take the lead for the number of reported workplace injuries, with more than half a million reported cases in the United States each year. Lifting and lowering patients, along with slips and falls, lead to many of these injuries. We have handled countless nursing and healthcare worker claims, and we know how to win them!
Our attorneys at Georgelis Injury Law Firm, P.C. understand how devastating these injuries can be to the workers and their families. Workers hurt on the job are often entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for lost wages, medical expenses and potentially more.
There are many contributing factors leading to the high number of injuries in the nursing and healthcare industry. Many of them can be avoided with proper training and safety measures put in place to protect workers. Here are some of the most prevalent injuries:
Recovery time from these types of injuries can be long lasting. In fact, for every ten-thousand full-time healthcare workers in the U.S., the Department of Labor reports 447 days are missed due to injuries. Often, healthcare workers return to work before a full recovery and with the effects of the injury ongoing, possibly even lasting a lifetime. So, when do you have a case?
To make this determination, there are a few things to consider.
