Working within the health care industry is always unpredictable. Of course, the highs that Denver nurses and health care workers get to experience when they ease a patient’s pain and suffering, treat injuries or even save lives are exhilarating and are often the reason why they got into the field. But the job also comes with some serious lows, among them, the risk of injury in a workplace accident.
One might think that the health care system would take good care of its own in these situations. Providers, of course, do everything they can for their colleagues, just as they do for all of their patients. The problem isn’t getting the best care available. The all-too-common problem, for health care workers injured on the job, is how they will afford the necessary treatment.
Workers’ compensation is available to cover injured health care workers, whether they broke a bone in a fall on the job or suffered a puncture wound from a syringe or any manner of injury in between. But at the Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C., we have seen time and time again that insurance companies will act to protect their own bottom line. They may scrimp on paying in full for the comprehensive treatment you need; they may even deny your claim altogether.
W. Dan Mahoney has firsthand knowledge of the tactics used by insurance companies in these situations because he has previous experience working on their behalf in court. The professionals at the Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C., put this knowledge and experience to use standing up for injured nurses and health care workers in the Denver area. We’re happy to discuss your injuries and any questions or concerns you may have about filing (or appealing a denial of) a workers’ compensation claim.
