Representing Medical Professionals With Work-Related Injuries

As a health care professional, you have dedicated your career to helping the sick and injured. However, after sustaining an injury at work, you now need someone to take care of you and be your advocate. At Dowd & Corrigan, LLC, we are committed to taking care of medical professionals and fighting for them to receive compensation after a work-related injury. You deserve to have the same personal attention that you give to your patients, and we are the attorneys who can provide it.

Helping Health Care Workers With A Variety Of Injury Claims

Injured health care professionals of all types come to us because they know we will get the job done. With over 70 years’ experience, we have helped health care workers such as doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, nursing home aides, paramedics, medical assistants and countless others. Each position poses their own risks and can result in injuries.

Common injuries medical workers sustain include:

  • Cuts
  • Sprains/strains
  • Back injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Needle sticks
  • Infections
  • Burns

Not every injury must be physical to file a workers’ compensation claim. Thousands of medical professionals file workers’ compensation claims after experiencing emotional trauma as a result of their job. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is an example of an emotional injury.

There may not be one event specifically that caused your injury. As a nursing home aid, for example, you may damage your back over time from lifting patients. Injuries caused by repetitive motions are called repetitive stress injuries. We can help you file a claim for a repetitive stress injury and prove that the injury was caused due to work.

We Are Aggressive Advocates For Nurses

Our experienced trial attorneys have gone to bat for countless nurses who sustained work-related injuries. Managing a workers’ compensation claim without a knowledgeable lawyer to help can become time-consuming, exhausting and stressful when dealing with insurance companies. No nurse should put their health and recovery on the back burner to manage their claim. We will work with you to help get you back on your feet and live a high quality of life.
