Solid Workers’ Compensation Representation For Hospital Workers
As hospital workers spend each day caring for and treating those who have been hurt, there are plenty of risks that might cause them to also be hurt. When workplace injuries occur in a hospital, workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to cover treatment and lost wages.

Hospital workers include everyone working in the hospital and directly for the hospital, such as doctors, nurses, aids, receptionists, janitors, administrators and other support staff. If you work in a hospital, but for a contractor or vendor other than the hospital itself, you would be covered under that company’s workers’ compensation policy.
Healthcare worker injuries can include:
- Pain and dislocation due to slipping on a slick floor or surface
- Back and muscle strains from lifting heavy patients
- Exposure to dangerous viruses, bacteria and germs
- Injury from equipment or machinery
- Injuries involving patients
Hospitals are also prime locations for repetitive stress injuries. Over time, the muscular and nervous stress of performing the same motion can lead to chronic pain and conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome. We will help you trace your injury back to your work environment and the duties of your job.
