We Provide Nurses With Legal Representation In Work Comp Claims
People rely on nurses to get through troubling times, but all too often nurses become the patients. Job hazards abound in the nursing profession. When an injury or occupational disease strikes, however, many nurses meet resistance when seeking the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to.
Whether you work in a hospital, nursing home, clinic or surgical center, for an in-home medical provider, or in any other setting, you deserve compensation for your medical bills and wage loss. At Sawers & Sackel PLLC, our Buffalo workers’ compensation attorneys can help because we have focused our careers on this area of law. This is all we do, and we do it well.
How Were You Injured?
Nurses are exposed to job hazards on a daily basis. Some of the most common nursing injuries occur due to:
- Back injuries from lifting patients
- Slip-and-fall accidents on hospital floors
- Exposure to germs and harmful chemicals
- Accidents involving needles, scalpels and other medical instruments
Even when you follow all of the safety protocols, accidents can occur. Sometimes patients act unpredictably so the best lifting procedure still results in a back or neck injury. If you work in a fast-paced environment such as an emergency room, it is even more difficult to avoid hazards.
