Employees Of Temporary Staffing Agencies Are Entitled To Seek Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Are you a part-time nurse or lab technician? Temporary staffing agency employees are subject to the same risks of injury and illness as full-time employees, but they often have greater difficulty with workers’ compensation claims. It is important to know you are entitled to protection under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act, regardless of whether you are an employee or contractor and no matter how long you have worked at a particular facility.
At The Law Office of Bryan S. Hawkins in Augusta, workers’ compensation is all we do. We know exactly how to handle the challenges that are unique to claims filed by temporary staffing agency employees, including determining which employer’s insurance company is responsible for paying the claim. Attorney Bryan S. Hawkins once sat on the other side of the table, and he knows how to combat defense strategies.
Temporary Employees Are Subject To The Same Workplace Risks
If you are a temporary or part-time employee, you are entitled to seek compensation after you have suffered a work-related illness or injury. You are not automatically awarded maximum benefits, which is why choosing a lawyer who focuses exclusively on workers’ compensation is so important.
We can help you recover benefits for cases involving a wide range of injuries such as:
- Musculoskeletal or orthopedic injuries caused by heavy lifting, pushing, turning and transporting patients
- Exposure to infectious diseases or other biohazards
- Falls caused by slipping on spilled liquids
- Assault from a violent patient
- Exposure to radiation
