Health Worker Injuries
Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Cobb County
As a professional health worker, you already know that you are exposed to dangers virtually every day you go to work, but there are times when it seems like your own employer or their insurance company does not understand that. After suffering from an illness or injury on-the-job, you may be shocked to discover that you are not being granted enough workers’ compensation benefits to cover your necessary expenses. Instead, it seems that you are being given a bare minimum amount; in some situations, you may even be blamed for some or all of the incident that led to your injury and are denied benefits altogether.
Take heart in knowing that you are not alone and you are not out of options after your employer or their insurance provider does not take your health worker injury case seriously. Our Cobb County workers’ compensation lawyers, also serving Marietta, Georgia, can represent you. We will discuss a fair settlement amount, hopefully resolving matters before they take too long, but we also prepare your claim as if it will require litigation to complete, just in case.

Everyday Dangers in the Healthcare Field
Medical professionals and health workers are frequently exposed to patients suffering from serious illnesses. Routine inoculations and special care to prevent infection is effective but not foolproof. A disabling sickness could afflict a health worker at any time. In other situations, a physical injury could be inflicted while moving a patient or performing surgery.
A health worker may experience any of the following health complications:
- Serious illness
- Recurring fevers or debilitating symptoms
- Chronic health conditions
- Exposure to dangerous chemicals or substances
You should be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that help you get back on your feet after being seriously injured while at work. Medical bills, costs of medication, and lost wages are the expected benefits amount but much less may be rewarded if the insurer is more concerned with saving money than protecting your wellbeing.
