An ICU nurse at a large hospital was injured on the job when she tripped over a hose. The nurse was immediately hospitalized and had surgery a few days later
It was determined that the nurse had lost partial function. However, under a Worker’s Compensation disability Claim, they would have had limited payment.
We were able to reach a settlement that allowed the nurse to receive additional compensation. The settlement avoided costly litigation and allowed them to move on with the possibility of taking on adjusted work. Without the settlement, the nurse would have been limited in future employment opportunities.
