Nursing Injuries

Skilled Nursing Home Injury & Negligence Lawyer in Nevada

Nurses suffer approximately 35,000 work related injuries each year. Since the majority of nursing injuries are caused by the heavy lifting or maneuvering of patients, nurses frequently suffer painful and often disabling back and neck injuries. If you or your loved one has sustained an injury while working in the health care industry, you could be entitled to financial compensation. Raji Rai-Nielsen is committed to providing you with legal guidance and representation to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Understanding Nursing Injuries

Nursing is undoubtedly one of the most accident prone occupations in the United States. With injury rates in nursing surpassing those in fields like law enforcement and construction, tens of thousands of nurses are forced to miss extensive amounts of work and even cut their careers short due to the lasting effects of their injuries. In many situations, the injuries sustained are so significant that they have a negative impact on the daily lives of victims. It is not uncommon for injured nurses to become unable to complete routine household chores, participate in hobbies, or even pick up their children or grandchildren.

Fortunately, nurses who become injured on the job may be entitled to receive financial compensation to help cover some of the costs associated with their injuries. Some of the damages that can be recovered include lost past and future wages, costs for medical treatment and equipment, vocational rehabilitation, and permanent loss of use or function.

Legal Options Surrounding Nursing Injuries

While most nurses are aware that some of the damages caused by their on the job injuries can be recovered through workers’ compensation, they also know that the meager settlement amounts offered by insurance companies are rarely enough to cover all of the costs involved. Our firm is dedicated to negotiating with the insurance company to ensure that you receive the maximum workers’ compensation settlement allowed. Additionally, we will pursue any other legal options and third party claims that may be available to help you recover all amounts that could be due to you.

Protecting Your Rights

Unfortunately, many injured nurses are hesitant when it comes to reporting their injuries because they fear losing their jobs or getting demoted. In Nevada, it is illegal for an employer to take adverse action against an injured worker who files a workers’ compensation claim. If you have been injured on the job, the law requires that you:
