Helping Nurses Get The Benefits They Deserve
Nursing is a noble profession, but it is also a dangerous job. Nurses have one of the highest occupational injury rates in the nation. When they suffer injuries while working, they are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. But do they always get those benefits? No.
If your workers’ comp claim has been denied or your benefits are being terminated before you have fully recovered, Law Offices of Gary R. Carlin, APC can act on your behalf. We provide aggressive, results-oriented representation for nurses seeking workers’ compensation benefits.
We handle workers’ compensation cases involving these and other types of work injuries suffered by nurses:
- Back injuries suffered while lifting and moving patients
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Needlestick injuries
- Assaults by patients and hospital visitors
- Infections and diseases incurred on the job

Nurse Back Injuries
Injuries to the back and shoulders are among the most common injuries suffered by nurses. In fact, nurses suffer musculoskeletal injuries at a rate seven times that of workers in other professions. Many nurses suffer sequential back injuries over their careers, and that presents a problem.
Has the insurance company denied your claim because you had a pre-existing injury? Or is it using some other excuse to avoid having to pay you the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve? If so, our lawyers will fight for you.
You Pay Only If We Win
Attorney fees in workers’ compensation cases are set by law, and you will owe a fee only if we help you get benefits. There is no risk for you.
