New Jersey Work Related Injuries to Nurses Lawyer

Nurses use both their minds and their bodies to make sure that patients receive excellent care. Contrary to the public's perception, the job involves a great deal of heavy lifting and physical stress.

Lifting patients, carrying them from beds to wheelchairs to bathrooms and back … it's a daily demand that continually puts nurses at risk of orthopedic injuries. If you're a nurse and you were injured while performing your job's essential duties, you have a right to workers' compensation.

At the Law Office of David A. Bolson, we have extensive experience representing injured nurses. Attorney Bolson has practiced in workers' compensation law for 30 years. Providing friendly, personalized service, he has an excellent reputation among lawyers, judges and former clients throughout North Jersey.

Any injury that is common to a certain line of work can be classified as an "occupational injury." Two of the ways that RNs, CNAs and Home Health Aides will sustain work-related injuries are:

Carrying Patients: It's simply a fact that a disabled patient can be very heavy and awkward to carry. Of course, nurses receive training on how to do this safely. But performing the same stressful motion over the course of years can cause ligaments and joints to wear down.

Altercations With Patients: if you work in a psychiatric ward or mental health institution, then you work with patients who are unpredictable by nature. A violent patient outburst can cause lacerations and even broken bones.

Most of our clients who are nurses suffer from neck and back injuries. But of course, injuries can take almost any form. They can be very painful and cause short-term or long-term disability.
