Whether a health care worker — such as a nurse, nursing assistant, aide or caregiver — works in a hospital, nursing home or patient residences, he or she is not immune to the dangers posed by equipment, slips-and-falls and household objects. Commutes to and from work can also be treacherous.
These injuries — whether suffered in the patient's home, on the way there or while transporting patients between their home and the hospital — are typically covered by workers' compensation benefits. Unfortunately, navigating the workers' compensation system is not simple, and it is in the best interests of injured workers to have an experienced attorney from Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, on their side.
