8 shocking car accident statistics

A car nearly sideswipes you on the way home from work. You swerve out of the way, but you almost run into an oncoming pickup truck in a head-on crash. You slam on the brakes, swerve back into your lane and then quickly pull into the next parking lot.

Those who work in nursing homes risk serious injuries on the job

To those who only visit, nursing homes probably seem like very safe and even boring places. However, for those who work in these important facilities, there are significant risks every day. The nurses, aides and other personal care professionals who work in nursing homes, personal care facilities and similar assisted living facilities can easily end up hurt on the job.

Lifting patients is one danger nurses face

While many hospitals, including those in South Jersey, have taken steps to provide healthier work environments such as programs to help nursing staff avoid burnout, there is one area where every hospital seems to come up short: patient lifting practices. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that, every year, nurses suffer from 35,000 back and musculoskeletal injuries, mostly due to lifting patients.

Medical staff frequently end up hurt in the line of duty

Nurses, physicians' assistants and other medical professionals who work in hospitals or at clinics devote their lives to caring for others. Many of these jobs require multiple years of schooling, as well as a dedication to working longer-than-average shifts, often 12 hours at a time, on top of rotating holidays. Still, medical workers continue to do everything in their power to ensure the well-being of the people entrusted to their care.

What to do after a workers' compensation claim gets denied?

Workers' compensation is a program created in order to protect those who work for a living from ending up disabled and in poverty as a result of a work injury. Employers in New Jersey must generally carry a policy to protect workers who sustain injuries or develop an illness in the course of their work. That means that it can feel frustrating and unfair when you receive notice that your claim for these critical benefits got denied for some reason.

Nurses risk injury every day while helping others at work

When people think about dangerous professions, nursing usually isn't at the top of the list. Most people imagine nurses having a secure and simple job. While nurses certainly do administer medication, talk to patients and help provide daily care for those in hospitals, they do so at great physical risk to themselves.
