Workers’ Compensation For Injured Doctors
Doctors and other health care professionals are often on their feet for most of the day. This can take a hard toll on the body and lead to serious back and foot problems. Additionally, wet floors at a hospital, medical equipment and even the patients can cause other workplace accident hazards.
If you are a doctor and were injured at work, learn your rights by talking with an experienced attorney skilled at handling physician occupational injury cases.
