Representing Health Care Providers When on-the-Job Accidents and Injuries Happen
The healthcare industry employs numerous workers. In addition to doctors and nurses, our community relies on emergency medical services (EMS) providers, diagnostic technicians, surgeons, rehabilitative workers, and hospital administrators to provide quality care as needed. Unfortunately, many of the tasks these workers perform put their own health and safety in jeopardy.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employees in health care professions have one of the highest rates for work related accidents and injuries. As experienced Ponca City workers’ compensation attorneys, BDIW Law represent health care providers in filing benefit claims. Among the accidents and injuries suffered by health care workers in cases we represent include:
● Exposure to hazardous substances;
● Exposure to dangerous diseases;
● Overuse and overexertion injuries;
● Slip, trip, and fall injuries;
● Getting struck by or against objects and machinery;
● Severe lacerations, burns, and needle pricks;
● Violent altercations with patients or their family members.
When any of the above happen, it can leave you unable to work while facing a mountain of medical expenses. In these situations, Oklahoma workers’ compensation benefits can provide the safety net needed while you recover.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Health Care Providers
When on-the-job accidents and work related injuries happen, you may be entitled to benefits through the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC). At BDIW Law, we provide the professional legal representation you need when filing this type of claim, so you can get the maximum amount of benefits you need to recover. Workers’ compensation can help offset many of the costs associated with on-the-job injuries. These include:
● Medical expenses during your recovery;
● Reimbursement for lost wages;
● Compensation for temporary or permanent disabilities you suffer as a result;
● Career rehabilitation and job retraining in the event you are unable to return to your prior field.
