Medical Workers Are At High Risk For On-The-Job Injuries
In the world of health care, nurses and nurse’s aides do much of the heavy lifting — both literally and figuratively — for patients. Lifting patients and performing other duties can put stress on the body and cause life-changing injuries, either as a one-time event or a repetitive motion injury.
In most cases involving a health care professional being hurt on the job, workers’ compensation benefits are provided by law. Whether the employer is a hospital, a nursing home, a health management organization or another business, these benefits are intended to help close the wage loss gap and cover injury-related medical expenses.
Representing Twin Cities Nurses And Nurses’ Aides
I am Coon Rapids nurse injury attorney David M. Bialke. If you were hurt while working in the medical field, I can advise you regarding:
- A back injury such as a disk problem
- A painful neck injury like a pulled muscle
- A shoulder injury affecting the rotator cuff or another body part
- A joint problem in the knees or another body part
- A denied claim for a medical bill or wage replacement
- Whether you have a workers’ comp claim
As a lawyer based in Anoka County, I represent injured nurses and nurse’s aides in the Twin Cities and in northern Minnesota. I help health care workers obtain and keep wage replacement and medical benefits when they are hurt on the job through accidents or repetitive movements.
