Are you wondering what kind of worker’s compensation benefits you qualify for if you’re hurt by violence while on the job?

At Kaufman & Kaufman, LLC. we’re here to help you protect your rights. If your employer says you’re not eligible for benefits, we’ll investigate and make sure you’re not being denied what’s lawfully yours.

In the healthcare industry, you could be punched, kicked, beaten, bitten, strangled, shot or physically assaulted at work. According to a recent report from the University of Illinois, “90 percent of nurses surveyed in that state noted that they had experienced workplace violence at least once in the past year. More alarming was that 50 percent of the nurses said they experienced violence six or more times in a year.”

As a health care worker, you’re a vital part of patient care and you help make your workplace better You shouldn’t worry when it comes to staying safe while doing your job, but patients can become agitated and lash out, putting you and your co-workers at risk for injury.

New legislation requires workplaces to implement violence prevention plans and training. Does your workplace have these procedures and training programs in place? If not, know that you still qualify for worker’s compensation in the state of Colorado if you’re hurt on-the-job.
