Caregivers who work in a patient's home provide a wonderful service that should never be taken for granted. But despite their selfless line of work, they are not immune from the dangers that can lurk in any home, such as sharp objects, slips-and-falls or even other people.
Injuries suffered by in-home caregivers are usually covered by workers' compensation, which can provide wage loss and medical benefits to injured New York workers. Unfortunately, the system for obtaining workers' compensation benefits can be extremely complex, leaving injured workers feeling alone and unsure of their rights.
Skilled Representation for In-Home Caregivers in Staten Island
At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, our dedicated attorneys have more than 30 years of experience representing injured workers and pursuing the full benefits they deserve. This includes in-home caregivers who suffer from:
- Back and neck injuries
- Exposure to bodily fluids
- Patient assaults
- Repetitive stress injuries
In-home caregivers lift equipment, patients, household objects and other items on a daily basis. This can result in wear and tear over the years, leaving caregivers with debilitating back injuries. If you have suffered a back injury from lifting, we can help you pursue the full benefits you deserve for medical costs and wage loss.
