Helping Injured Hospital Employees Seek Workers' Compensation Benefits in Ohio

According to the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), hospitals are the most dangerous places to work. In 2011, there were over 250,000 reports of work-related injuries by hospital personnel. If you are a healthcare worker, and you were injured on the job, you have the right to file a workers compensation claim. The benefits you may be entitled to can help pay for your medical expenses, lost wages, or other injury-related damages. To increase the chances of successfully filing a workers' compensation claim, it's best to get a skilled attorney on your side.

Common Types of Injuries Suffered by Hospital Personnel

The working environments of hospitals are unique, which is why personnel are more likely to suffer injuries or illnesses while on the job. Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare workers must come in contact with various dangers and hazards that are not present in most sectors.

Hospital personnel are exposed to airborne diseases that can cause infections, sharp needles and other instruments that might be contaminated with bloodborne pathogens, and medical tubes and wires that increase the risk of trips and falls. Additionally, they must manually lift or move patients, may come in contact with violent patients, and must react quickly to emergencies. These conditions, coupled with the fact that hospital workers are often overworked, make personnel potentially more prone to injury.

The most common types of hospital workplace injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Cuts or lacerations
  • Punctures
  • Sprains and strains
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures

If you are a medical professional who sustained an injury or illness while performing work-related tasks, it's important to file a workers' compensation claim to get the benefits and time you need to recover. Our Columbus attorneys are here to help you through this often complex process. We know the laws concerning your rights, and we can answer any questions you might have and let you know the types of benefits you may be entitled to.
