Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation for Injured Home Attendants

The Workers’ Compensation Law Firm You Can Trust to Keep You Safe

Home attendants are some of the hardest working health professionals there are. Every day, they care for our ailing loved ones and make sure they get the medical attention they need – but they do so much more. Home attendants often clean houses, prepare meals, bathe and groom their patients, and even handle their bookkeeping and shopping (under certain circumstances). In many cases, these invaluable workers become more than employees – they become family.

And when your family is hurting, you want what is best for them. That is why Larry Pitt & Associates is proud to represent injured home attendants in Philadelphia and throughout Pennsylvania when they are hurt on the job. Our legal team understands the challenges facing home health aides every day, and we work hard to ensure that you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve after you have been injured.

Understanding the Laws

As of January of 2015, all home attendants who are employed by an agency are guaranteed certain rights under laws like the Fair Labor Standards Act (guaranteeing overtime pay for any home attendant who surpasses 40 hours of work in a week) and the Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act. Under the Workers’ Compensation Act, any employee who contributes to the workers’ compensation fund can apply for benefits if he or she is injured on the job.

Types of Home Attendant Injury Cases We Handle

At Larry Pitt & Associates, we represent home attendants and health aides who have suffered injuries related to their work. Some of the types of injuries and cases we take include:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Exposure to blood, toxic chemicals or substances within the home, such as asbestos in older homes
  • Injuries sustained because of acts of violence by the patient or other family members
  • Injuries sustained in an auto accident while driving to work, or in the course of running errands for the patient
  • Injuries sustained while working in an unsafe environment
  • Neck, back/spine, wrist and ankle injuries
  • Needle pricks, leading to the spread of infections or diseases like HIV/AIDS
  • Slips, trips and falls in the home or on the property
  • Strained muscles and joints, often caused by lifting heavy objects or trying to move patients without assistance

No matter how you were injured in the course of your duties as a home health aide, our Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers can help you build a claim for benefits. We have successfully represented clients throughout the state who needed workers’ compensation to protect their loved ones while they themselves recovered from their injuries. We want to help you, too.
