Minnesota Lawyers Helping Injured Workers

Minnesota Lawyers For Injured Health Care Workers

At Midwest Disability, P.A., we deeply appreciate the work that Minnesota health care workers do to keep our communities healthy. Our attorneys have spent decades helping workers in this industry get necessary workers’ compensation benefits after they have suffered work injuries and illnesses.

Our clients have included a full range of health care workers, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nursing assistants, hospital personnel, phlebotomists, first responders such as emergency medical technicians (EMTs), diagnostic laboratory personnel, pharmacists and health care employees of many other types. Many of our clients have been employees at Mayo Clinic in Rochester as well.

Workplaces of our health care worker clients have included doctors’ offices, hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, diagnostic facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, community health care centers, ambulances and patients’ homes. Each type of health care work environment and work activities present unique hazards, such as mental health issues and frequent exposure to people with potentially contagious diseases.

Types Of Health Care Injuries

Many of the dangers that health care workers face are specific to the industry. For example, workers in hospitals may be exposed to MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infections. Health care employees in nursing and assisted living facilities may suffer lifting injuries, hurting their lower backs in a single accident or wearing out their joints over time from repeatedly moving patients or residents around while providing top-notch care.

Our health care worker injury lawyers in Minnesota handle claims involving potential risk factors such as the following:

  • Blood-borne disease exposure
  • Lifting injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Equipment accidents

Long-term disability policies may be available for health industry workers to purchase, either through their employers or privately. While these policies are designed to provide benefits in the event of a disability, those benefits are not typically issued automatically. Even when health care workers are covered by such policies, insurance companies may deny claims to avoid paying benefits. Application and appeals requirements can be difficult for most people to navigate on their own.

Our attorneys are available to step in and make certain that insurance companies follow through on their promises. As needed, we take legal action on behalf of our clients to ensure that insurers honor the terms of their insureds’ long-term disability policies.
