Skilled Legal Representation For Injured Home Health Care Workers
Home health care workers serve an important and necessary role in society. They take care of our loved ones who face challenging health issues, allowing the patient to avoid life in a health care facility. However, when it comes to protecting their rights after sustaining work-related injuries, home health care workers may face a difficult path.
For more than 55 years, Fishman & Fishman, LLC, has provided compassionate and skilled legal services to personal injury victims. We represent and advocate for their best interests before insurance companies and all relevant parties to recover and maximize their compensation.
When you work with us after an injury, we dedicate time to listen to your story, the types of injuries you sustained and your needs to create legal solutions accordingly. We stand ready to counsel you through your options and fight for you, so you have all you need to recover your health.
Assisting You Through The Critical Time After An Injury
All employers in New Jersey should provide their workers with workers’ compensation insurance. However, work arrangements for home health care workers might be outside the conventional practice. For example, workers may be independent contractors or part of a staffing agency that might deny workers’ comp after they report their accident or illness.
Some of the most common injuries among health care professionals include recurrent back injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, and sprains and strains caused by moving patients and repetitive tasks. Other nonphysical injuries such as post-traumatic stress may compromise a health care worker’s ability to work.
When we discuss your case with you, we will:
- Help you determine the relationship with your employer and determine whether you are eligible for workers’ compensation
- Look for alternatives and other responsible parties that may provide compensation
- Assist you in holding negligent parties accountable
We work on a contingency basis. You will pay our fees when we recover your compensation. When we discuss your situation at our Lawnside or Hammonton offices, we will give you an honest evaluation of your case and look for solutions. Regardless of the complexity of your situation, we will strive to find answers and address your needs.
