Help For Injured Health Care Workers In New Jersey

Last updated on March 1, 2024

Health care workers are among the most lauded in the nation – and the most vulnerable to injuries. When an on-the-job accident or illness prevents you from working, you have a right to expect workers’ compensation benefits to be there.

At Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, LLC, our attorneys have been advocating for injured workers in Toms River and throughout Ocean County since 1996. When you come to us, you will work one-on-one directly with the lawyer in charge of your case, and we know what it takes to protect your interests at every stage of the claims process.

What Are The Most Common Health Care Worker Injuries?

Hospitals, clinics, pharmacies, medical labs and doctor’s offices all have their hazards. Some of the most common causes of workers’ compensation claims for health care employees include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries, including sprains and strains from lifting and transferring patients, or repetitive motion injuries from charting and typing
  • Needlestick injuries or cuts from sharp objects that expose workers to infectious pathogens
  • Slips, trips and falls, which can lead to broken bones, serious back injuries and traumatic brain injuries
  • Violent assaults from agitated and disoriented patients or angry family members of patients

Whether you simply need help with your claim or you suspect that you are being treated unfairly, legal guidance from an experienced attorney can make sure that your rights are protected and that you get every dollar and benefit you deserve. We help:

  • Physicians and physician assistants
  • Nurses and nurse practitioners
  • Psychologists and social workers
  • Phlebotomists and lab technicians
  • Radiologists and physical therapists
  • Paramedics and EMTs

No matter what your health care occupation, you can be exposed to injury – and we are always available to help.
