Hospital Worker Injury & Illness

Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Oakland and Concord

Doctors, nurses, healthcare specialists, and any other hospital staff member can be subjected to a workplace hazard not seen in many other professions: pervading and dangerous illnesses. Hospital management must be careful to supply all hospital workers with appropriate training and precautionary tools to avoid infection and the spreading of disease. Otherwise, any worker in the hospital – from a surgeon to a clerk to a janitor – is put in unfair risk and may fall ill.

If you work at a hospital and were injured or stricken ill, you should consider filing for workers’ compensation to make up for any time you needed to take off work to recover. Our Oakland workers’ compensation lawyers at Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center are here to make this process easy for you by providing trusted legal counsel and guidance. If you did file a claim but got denied, we are also primed to fight for your rights through an appeal.

Proving Your Illness Came from Your Workplace

Workers’ compensation claims filed due to a workplace injury may sometimes be straightforward when it comes to proving that the injury happened at work, as eyewitnesses or security footage can witness the event clearly. Workplace illnesses that afflict hospital staff members are a different story altogether. Pinpointing where the illness originated can be difficult, especially if an ill worker does not get diagnosed right away.

To help prove that your illness originated from the hospital you work in, consider using:

  • Hospital patient records that show illness outbreak
  • Your itinerary that shows you worked with or around sick patients
  • Your health records to show you did not have this illness before
  • Any evidence that indicates a lack of safety standards at the hospital

With the eyes of our Oakland workers’ compensation attorneys on your case, we can put our minds together to try to determine what evidence is useful for your claim in case it is denied or delayed. Our goal is contesting the denial readily and achieving a fast victory so you spend as little time as possible not knowing if you will be compensated for your losses or not.

Other Hospital Worker Injuries

In addition to unusual or persistent illnesses, a hospital worker may be harmed through other means. Strict safety regulations must be maintained at the hospital to protect people from accidents. This is quite important considering that neglect could feasibly also harm a patient at the hospital.

Depending on their role at a medical clinic, a hospital worker could be injured by:

  • Slips and falls
  • Back injury from lifting heavy objects
  • Lacerations from sharp utensils
  • Electrocution from frayed wiring

No matter the type of injury and whether or not you are to blame for your accident, you still deserve workers’ compensation to cover your expenses while you recuperate. Liability is not considered a factor in workers’ comp claims unless there is ample evidence to suggest the injured worker was intentionally trying to be hurt.

We Offer Free Consultations & Contingency Fee Agreements

If your workers’ compensation claim was already denied after you got hurt as a hospital worker and an appeal is not possible, you can find some confidence to move your case forward in knowing that we do not expect payment for our services out of your own pocket.

When we take a case in pursuit of a settlement or jury award, it is through contingency fee agreements, which means you only pay our attorney fees if we win your case. Plus, we offer free case evaluations so you can learn if your claim has legal validity without paying upfront for our time. It is all part of putting the clients’ needs first and foremost.
