Statistically speaking, hospitals are one of the most hazardous places to work. According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), the injury and illness rate for health care professionals is double that of private industry as a whole.
Doctors, nurses, paramedics, and other medical workers are exposed to various diseases and hazards in the workplace, putting them at risk of contracting a debilitating disease or suffering an injury in the course of their occupation.

Common Hazards for Health Workers
Health workers can suffer a variety of work-related injuries and illnesses, including:
- Back injuries from moving patients
- Bloodborne pathogens
- Contact with sharp objects
- Violent outbursts from mental patients
- Slip and fall accidents
It is highly likely that your insurance company may try to give you the bare minimum amount of compensation if you attempt to negotiate with them without the assistance of a trial-tested attorney. If you have suffered any of the above injuries, it is crucial that you consult with our firm as soon as possible to determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue. We can examine your situation and answer any questions you may have.
