Injuries To Nurses
Many people do not think of nursing when they think about occupations that could lead to injuries. However, nurses have a very physically demanding job where injuries occur with uncommon frequency. The injuries range from serious back and neck problems due to lifting, to the possibility of exposure to dangerous materials such as medical waste.
At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we diligently pursue workers’ compensation on behalf of injured nurses in Greensboro and throughout central North Carolina. We represent nurses who suffered injuries caused by:
- Slipping on spills on the floor
- Exposure to unsafe chemical
- Lifting or transferring a patient
- Knee problems from standing
Helping Nurses Receive Maximum Compensation
Nursing positions tend to pay high wages, which means a nurse who is injured and unable to work as a nurse may lose significant wages. In these situations, additional workers’ compensation benefits may be available. Working with an experienced lawyer can help ensure you receive the full and fair benefits for which you are eligible.
