Are Health Care Workers At A High Risk For Injuries?


If you work in the health care industry, you understand the pressures and physical demands that come with providing care and support for the sick and injured. Doctors, nurses and others who work in the medical field dedicate their careers to healing and health, but these men and women could be facing significant risk for injuries themselves.

Health care workers face unique risks and hazards associated with providing medical care. When these individuals suffer injuries in work-related accidents, they have the right to seek financial support and medical care so they can recover and return to work. At Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George we help Pennsylvania health care workers navigate the aftermath of a work accident and get the support they deserve.

We help you address challenges that can arise with a workers’ compensation claim, diligently pursuing the maximum amount of compensation that may be available to you. Our attorneys at Luxenberg Garbett Kelly & George will fight for the full and fair amount of support you deserve, which can include recovery of a portion of your lost wages, medical care and rehabilitation needs.

Medical care providers of all types can face certain risks when providing physical care to the ill and the injured. Doctor offices, hospitals, long-term care facilities and various types of care centers can be risky places to work, and those employed in health care often suffer from the following types of injuries:

  • Back injuries from moving patients
  • Harmful exposure to dangerous drugs or toxic chemicals
  • Needle sticks
  • Violence from patients or families

Regardless of the nature of your injury, you are entitled to a full and fair recovery. Our job is to see that you get what you need through your workers’ compensation insurance claim. We are not intimidated by uncooperative insurance companies, denied claims or other setbacks — our experienced lawyers will diligently fight on behalf of your best interests.
