Workers Compensation Nurse & Healthcare Worker Injury Claims

Nurses and healthcare workers have one of the highest job injury rates of all occupations. We understand that staff shortages or realities of the moment often put nurses and health care workers in situations dealing with patients who are heavy or too frail for one worker to handle. The result is often herniated discs and back strains that take the person off the job for weeks, for months or permanently. Back, neck and shoulder injuries are common. Without proper treatment and time to recover, these injuries can end your career.

We also see several other common on-the-job injuries to nurses and health care center employees, like slip-and-fall injuries, assaults by patients, and medical equipment malfunction injuries.
