Legal Assistance For Injured Nursing Personnel
As a nurse, we understand you have a true calling for helping others. We also know that your job is no easy task and could lead to various injuries or occupational illnesses. Since the foundation of Fishman & Fishman, LLC, in 1965, the lawyers at have fought to protect the rights and maximize the compensation of personal injury victims in New Jersey, and we are ready to help you.
Nursing staff have exhausting work shifts involving bending, walking, standing and other activities that could cause injury. Other risks associated with hospital facilities include slip- or trip-and-falls, contact with dangerous chemical substances or even facing violent patients. If you were injured at work or suffer from an occupational illness, we want to hear about your case.
Representing Your Best Interests To Obtain Fair Compensation
According to New Jersey law, all employers should provide workers’ compensation insurance. However, if your employer denies this benefit to you, we will help you analyze and establish your employee-employer relationship and your options.
Moreover, you may receive benefits whether you had an accident at your workplace or suffered long-term damage caused by repetitive work tasks like bending. The most common injuries and illnesses among health care personnel include:
- Exposure to hazardous chemical substances or environments
- Slip- or trip-and-falls causing back or spinal cord injuries
- Accidents that occurred during transportation
- Excessive physical effort
- Repetitive motion injuries including twisting, bending or lifting
After sustaining injuries, we understand that you might be facing a financial struggle. Your case evaluation with our attorneys has no cost, and we collect our fees when you collect your compensation. Our priority is your welfare.
