Representing Health Care Workers Injured On The Job in Denver, CO
Workers in the healthcare field know that each day brings new experiences. You never know what is going to happen, and you need to be prepared to make split-second decisions that could be the difference between life and death for a patient. The training that you have received as a nurse, doctor, or other medical professional puts you in a position to take the immediate action necessary to solve a patient’s problem.
Unfortunately, hospitals, clinics, and nursing homes are not immune to workplace accidents. In the course of treating a patient, you may suffer an injury or illness that makes it impossible for you to work while recovering. If this happens to you, you may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits under Colorado law.
At my firm, The Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C., I assist healthcare workers who have been injured while working. For more than two decades, I have helped medical professionals with their workers’ compensation claims. I can help you get the benefits that you need while you are out of work dealing with your injuries.
What To Know About Workers’ Compensation
The workers’ comp system is very detailed and has specific rules that you must follow in order to recover compensation. Knowing what to do at each step in the process is essential to a successful claim. There are no fault requirements in place, and the system applies to nearly any injury that is suffered on the job. Some of the various injuries common to healthcare workers include:
- Fractures and sprains suffered in falls
- Back, neck, and shoulder injuries as a result of heavy lifting
- Illnesses suffered from needle punctures or exposure to patients
While your career has provided you with substantial knowledge regarding injuries and the care needed to treat these injuries, insurance companies may still try to insist that they know what is best for you. They may make it impossible for you to get the treatment you need. They will try to minimize the amount of benefits you are able to receive, and this can be extremely frustrating. Having an experienced worker’s compensation lawyer in Denver on your side is the first step toward maximizing the benefits that you are able to recover.
I can help make things easier. I have worked as a defense attorney for insurance companies before representing injured workers, so I know the methods they use to evaluate these claims. I will stand up to them and fight for your claims each step of the way.
