Fighting For The Rights Of Injured Health Care Workers
The tasks that nurses and other health professionals perform on the job put them at risk for developing musculoskeletal injuries. Nursing has one of the highest rates of worker injuries of any profession.
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, our lawyers help nurses, home health aides and other health professionals obtain the medical care they need and the compensation they deserve for on-the-job injuries. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent health professionals throughout central Pennsylvania.
Nurses And Back Injuries
Nurses may suffer back and neck injuries, shoulder cuff injuries, knee and leg injuries, or other types of injuries from work activities such as:
- Moving or assisting patients
- Reaching over patients to hook up tubes and monitors
- Moving equipment in and out of patient rooms
Repeated injuries over time can lead to chronic pain that makes it difficult to do your job. While the workers’ compensation insurance carrier may pay you benefits initially, it can stop those benefits at any time by claiming your injury is either not work related or not as serious as you claim. Our lawyers can help you resolve these and other issues, including disputes over the amount of benefits, disputes over your care and negotiation for a lump-sum settlement.
