Healthcare Professionals

The healthcare profession employs over 18 million people according to the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These workers, such as doctors, nurses, healthcare aides, technicians, etc. can be susceptible to various injuries in the workplace. Approximately 35,000 injuries occur each year among nurses alone, causing hours of missed work and lost wages. Our Atlanta based law firm is prepared to help those in the healthcare field that have been injured on the job or obtained an illness from their work environment.
Common workplace injuries or illnesses in hospitals and medical facilities include:

  • Overexertion Injuries
  • Injuries from Lifting Patients
  • Back & Shoulder Injuries
  • Chronic Pain
  • Torn Rotator Cuffs
  • Slipped or Herniated Discs
  • Repetitive Movement Injuries, such as carpal tunnel, from conducting surgeries and procedures
  • Slip & Falls
  • Sprains & Strains
  • Blood Borne Pathogens from needle sticks
  • Violent assaults from patients, their families, etc.
  • Infections from the overall environment
  • Understaffing causing the pressure to work faster and the absence of support to assist with tasks, such as patient transfers

If you have endured an injury or obtained an illness from working in the healthcare field, you could be entitled to compensation. Contact Kaufman Law for your potential Georgia workers’ compensation claim.
