Janice M. Greening, LLC
More than 3,000 Injury and Disability Cases
Health care workers, no matter how careful they are, need to react quickly in many different situations. They are also faced with hazardous substances, heavy equipment, and the same types of accidents that are found in other workplaces:
- Allergic Reactions: Our workers' comp law firm has handled cases of health care workers who were allergic to latex gloves or to chemicals used for cleaning. Colorado workers' compensation is no-fault based. Any accident or disease caused at work should be covered.
- Back Injuries: Lifting and turning patients or stopping a patient fall can cause a back injury or shoulder injury. Over time, a back injury may develop from lifting patients. Your employer may say that your back injury is not work related. Lawyer Janice Greening has helped clients establish the cause of injury and obtain the needed and deserved benefits.
- Repetitive Motion Injuries: Lab technicians who work with microscopes, nurses who input patient data on keyboards, and others may suffer from repetitive motion stress or carpal tunnel syndrome. As workplace injuries, they qualify for workers' compensation benefits.
If you are a health care worker who has been injured by medical equipment, hazardous materials, or a fall on a slippery floor, make sure you get the medical treatment and lost wages you need.
