Steinberg Law Firm Commercial Urges Injured Health Care Workers To Get Help
“You spend your life taking care of others. So, when the unexpected happens, and you are injured at work, let the Steinberg Law Firm take care of you. Steinberg Law Firm, get the firm behind you.”
The Steinberg Law Firm released a new commercial that encourages health care workers in Charleston, Goose Creek, and Summerville to contact a workers’ compensation attorney if they have been injured at work. The 15-second commercial highlights that while those in the medical field are dedicated to caring for patients, they can turn to workers’ compensation lawyers for help when they become ill or are injured on the job.
In South Carolina, health care workers who get hurt on the job can file a workers’ compensation claim to obtain benefits for their injuries. Benefits can include medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and more.
Health care workers can suffer many different types of injuries due to the nature of their work. Repetitive tasks, slip and fall accidents, heavy lifting strains, pathogens, and exposure to chemicals are examples of some workplace injuries. Injuries can range from sprains and strains to broken bones and head trauma. However, an injury does not have to be serious for an employee to be eligible for workers’ compensation.
Workers’ compensation claims are not just limited to injuries that arise from workplace accidents. They can also be filed when an employee suffers an occupational illness, such as COVID-19. During the past year, healthcare workers have played an invaluable role in the coronavirus crisis’s frontlines. They have been exposed to the risk of contracting the disease while treating infected patients.
Workers who suffer an injury or illness during their employment are generally eligible for benefits. South Carolina has a no-fault workers’ compensation system that allows employees to obtain benefits without proving their employer was negligent or at fault for their injuries. Additionally, employees who are partially at fault for their injuries may still qualify for compensation.
Unfortunately, far too many health care workers are unfairly denied the workers’ compensation benefits they need. An employer may argue that an injury or illness is not work-related. Claims can also be disputed by insurance companies that are armed with legal teams of their own.
As the Steinberg Law Firm emphasizes in their new commercial, having experienced legal counsel can help injured health care workers ensure they receive the full financial support they deserve. A workers’ compensation attorney can stand up to aggressive insurance companies and employers who seek to pay as little compensation as possible. In such circumstances, legal action allows workers to gain access to vital benefits.
