Los Angeles Health Care Worker Injuries
Health care work can be much more strenuous than one might think. Nurses and nurse’s assistants are on their feet all day. During the course of working their shifts, they must reposition patients and lift heavy weights. Even those tasked with clerical work may suffer carpal tunnel syndrome or repetitive strain injuries. As a result, many workers in the health care sector can suffer injuries so severe that they prevent them from working.

Unfortunately, many employees in California are first examined by physicians at a medical provider network such as Concentra or U.S. HealthWorks. These physicians often send injured employees back to work before they have fully recovered.
The key to obtaining workers’ compensation benefits is to build a medical record that shows the extent of the injury and the effects it has on the injured worker. Our firm can refer you to a doctor who can perform an objective medical evaluation that correctly describes the injury you have suffered and the treatment you need to reach a point of maximum medical improvement. We can also help you communicate with your doctor more effectively, so that critical information about your injury gets entered into your record.
