Healthcare Worker Injury Claims
Health Care Worker Injury Claims
Nurses, caregivers, orderlies, attendants and other health care workers provide assistance to the injured, but sometimes they are injured doing their jobs. Health care worker injury claims unfortunately are not unusual in North Carolina. Hospital workers, nursing home employees and others who work in health care facilities are exposed to a number of potential hazards on the job.
When injuries occur, it's prudent to contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer in North Carolina who can provide assistance. Some insurance companies may unfortunately deny benefits to workers who have been seriously injured. The insurance carrier might argue you have a pre-existing condition or the injury was not job-related.
