Representing The Rights Of Injured Health Care Professionals
An aging population creates a need for more health care workers. Along with a booming health care industry comes more injuries to those care workers. The physically taxing nature of the work combined with unpredictable patients can lead to serious injuries that leave care workers unable to work and facing a mountain of medical bills.

Our attentive service and tenacious advocacy make up the prescription for maximizing your workers’ compensation benefits. We are looking out for your health. We realize the job hazards that health care professionals face and the pressures on them to return to patient care.
Nurses And Care Workers Injured On The Job
We have helped many employees in the health care field assert their work injury rights, including:
- Nurses (RNs and LPNs)
- Certified nursing assistants (CNAs)
- Lab techs and hospital employees
- In-home caregivers (private nurses)
- Home health care aides
- Nursing home employees
Health care employees have one of the highest rates of job injuries, which include back injuries from lifting patients, hands caught in gurneys and bedrails, wounds from thrashing or violent patients, falls on hard floors and injuries from medical equipment.
Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys will make sure you get the treatment you need so that we can determine the extent of your injuries. Then, we will make sure you receive the full benefits to which you are entitled under the law. While the insurance companies will go to great lengths to avoid paying out, we will build a strong case and hold them to their obligation. We likewise stand up to hospital administrators who downplay work restrictions or coerce nurses into returning to duty prematurely.
From the moment you first meet with us until you receive the settlement or award you deserve, you will be working with one attorney. We personally handle our clients’ cases, so we can form a relationship and understand the unique challenges they face.
