I Am In The Business Of Helping Injured Workers

Working In The Health Care Field Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

If you are a doctor, nurse, pharmacist, therapist or emergency medical technician (EMT), you know more vividly than anyone outside your field how challenging it can be to take good care of patients and protect your health and safety at the same time. It will come as no surprise to you to learn that health care workers are among the most common categories of workers who suffer on-the-job injuries and occupational illnesses and conditions.

You may have been injured through a sudden event in a hospital or on an ambulance run, or you may have developed a back or shoulder injury after years of lifting patients. No matter what type of workplace injury you are recovering from now, you need clear direction to maximize your workers’ compensation claim. I am attorney John E. Mahin, and I am ready to help you get the benefits you are eligible for.

What were the circumstances of your on-the-job accident in a hospital, clinic, pharmacy, ambulance or mobile health care vehicle? Common injuries to health care workers include the following:

  • Back, neck and shoulder injuries
  • Traumatic injuries resulting from assaults by patients
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Lingering effects of COVID-19 (also called “long COVID”)
  • Infections due to a puncture wound during an operation

Your injuries or occupational illness should qualify you for workers’ compensation, but you may find it challenging to obtain all the benefits you are eligible for. To improve your chances of success in your quest for medical care and financial support for time away from work, consult with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

A Few Words About COVID-19, Long COVID And The Health Care Profession

According to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC), “[If] you work in a job that poses a special hazard or risk and contract COVID-19 from the work exposure, BWC could allow your claim.” Health care workers can often demonstrate that their jobs put them at risk of contracting the virus. If I represent you, I will work hard to prove this fact so that your workers’ compensation benefits can provide the relief you deserve.
