Workers' Compensation for Healthcare Workers
Retain Skilled Legal Representation in Modesto
Like any other worker in the state of California, healthcare professionals are entitled to workers’ compensation when they are injured on the job or while doing any activity that benefits their employers. Hospitals, clinics, and other similar facilities must carry workers’ compensation insurance to protect any employee who is injured on the job or who falls ill due to work-related conditions.
If you are a healthcare professional who was injured while working, Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC can help you with your workers’ compensation claim. We serve clients throughout the Central Valley in complex workers’ compensation proceedings, such as claim denials and appeals, third-party injury claims, and more.
Reach out to us by calling (916) 884-6554 for a free consultation with one of our Modesto workers’ compensation attorneys.
Who Is Covered?
Healthcare workers face a number of risks every day, from slip and fall accidents to exposure to airborne illness to fatigue and stress. Many healthcare workers are required to be on their feet for 10 to 12 hours a day, repeat the same motions over and over, and work with and near hazardous equipment and materials. As a result, individuals within the healthcare industry are at a heightened risk of job-related injuries.
Any healthcare worker who is injured while performing duties related to his or her employment is covered by workers’ compensation in the state of California. This includes but is not limited to:
- Medical assistants
- Nursing aides
- Nursing home caregivers
- Hospital staff
- Pharmacy technicians
Additionally, a broad range of work-related injuries and conditions are covered by workers’ compensation, including:
- Strains and sprains
- Overuse injuries
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Exposure to blood-borne pathogens
- Exposure to airborne illness
- Patient or coworker assault/violence
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Overexertion and fatigue-related injuries
- Allergic reactions
- Work-related vehicle accidents
- Exposure to harmful chemicals, drugs, and other substances
If you are a healthcare worker in Modesto or the nearby areas who was involved in any of the above work-related accidents or who suffered any other type of on-the-job incident or injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and, in some cases, job retraining costs.
