Nurses And Hospital Workers Are At Risk For Serious Injuries
Nurses and hospital workers who have direct contact with patients are at risk for injury because of the difficult physical demands of their jobs. These jobs may require extensive lifting and transferring of patients and other physically demanding tasks that create a risk of injury.
If you are hurt on the job at a hospital or care facility, you have access to the same workers’ compensation benefits as other workers in Arizona. The attorneys at Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., can help ensure that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled. We represent nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, care attendants and other health care workers who have been injured at work.
Our law firm helps nurses and hospital workers who have injuries such as:
- Lifting injuries from assisting patients
- Injuries to the feet
- Trip-and-fall injuries
- Needle sticks
- Exposure to AIDS and other illnesses and diseases
If you have been injured on the job, under Arizona’s workers’ compensation laws you are entitled to two-thirds of your regular pay and other benefits. Our law firm can help you ensure that your claim is properly submitted and documented to ensure maximum benefits. We can help you resolve disputes regarding your claim and appeal if your claim is denied.
