Hurt While Working a Healthcare Job?
Workers' Compensation for Injured Healthcare Professionals
Nurses, medical assistants, and healthcare transportation workers are a few of the important gears that keep our hospitals moving. They are the first to arrive and the last to leave. They put in long hours caring for the sick and unwell and, because of this, often find themselves in need of medical care.
If you've been injured while working in any of the following occupations:
- Medical Assistant
- Hospital Patient Transportation
- Nursing Home Aid
- Physical/Occupational Therapist and PT/OT Aide
- And more
You could be entitled to Pennsylvania's workers' compensation benefits for your lost wages, medical expenses, and more. The workers' compensation system is difficult to navigate and can be confusing when you're already dealing with an injury. At Edgar Snyder & Associates, we're able to help guide you to the compensation you deserve.
