Yesterday we won another work comp trial. Our client, a visiting home nurse, contracted MRSA, a potentially deadly infection, while she was caring for home-bound patients. The employer claimed that we could not prove she contracted the MRSA from work since the actual bacteria can be found throughout the general public. While that might be true, we were able to prove that her work environment increased her risk of exposure and that she “more likely than not” contracted the illness at work. The infection caused the client to miss work, undergo infectious disease treatment and have some permanent loss of function of her leg. The client was thrilled with the result!
