San Diego Health Worker Injury Attorney

Representing Victims of Work-Related Injuries in Healthcare

Healthcare professionals treat sick and injured patients every day, but they aren’t exempt from acquiring their own injuries while on the job. Nurses, staff doctors, physical therapists, and lab technicians are all subject to on-the-job injuries that can result in their inability to work for extended periods of time.

  • Back injuries
  • Infections, communicable illnesses
  • Medical equipment injuries
  • Slips and falls
  • Assaults by patients
  • Chemical hazards
  • Work-related stress (both physical and emotional)

Healthcare workers have some of the hardest and most important jobs in their communities, and when one is injured, the mental and emotional toll can be as taxing as the physical. At Leigh Law Firm in San Diego, we understand how demoralizing an injury as a health worker can be, so let us take care of you. Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can examine your claim and advocate for your maximum compensation.

You Could Be Entitled to Workers’ Compensation

All San Diego healthcare professionals are backed by workers' compensation insurance as long as their employer has more than one full-time employee. When a health worker becomes sick or injured as a result of their job, this insurance should be used to cover time off as well as medical expenses. Unfortunately, insurance companies and employers often deny claims made by their workers in order to save on their own costs.
