More Than 80 Years Combined Experience Helping Injured Health Care Workers

The unfortunate reality is that people who devote their careers to helping others overcome serious medical conditions often suffer their own serious conditions or injuries in the process. To make matters worse, they frequently encounter difficulty in getting the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve. If you have been injured while working in the health care field, an experienced attorney can help you recover your benefits.

At Domer Law, our lawyers have more than 80 years of combined experience helping Wisconsin workers who were injured while helping patients in hospitals, clinics and other health care facilities. Our clients have included:

  • Registered nurses
  • Licensed practical nurses
  • Certified nursing assistants
  • Physical therapists
  • Other medical professionals

Perhaps you have not yet begun the process. Perhaps you already applied for workers’ comp benefits and have been denied benefits or offered an insufficient amount. Perhaps you are still waiting. Whatever the case, we will use our knowledge to move your claim forward.

Why Are Spine Injuries Common In The Medical Field?

Spine injuries occur frequently among nurses and other medical professionals. They often result from moving patients or heavy equipment, even when using proper form and following all the proper training. Often, a health care professional is forced to lift or move a heavy load without a co-worker’s assistance or other lifting help. You can also suffer spine injuries that build up over time, the result of the repetitive stress of moving patients and equipment day after day.

We Know How Important Benefits Are To You

Even after surgery and physical therapy, injuries may have lingering effects. Significantly, they may even cut your career short. Workers’ compensation benefits become extremely important. If you have permanent physical limitations from a spine injury that does not allow a return to that field, you might have the right to file a loss of earning capacity claim. It compares your pre-injury wages to what you can earn in the open labor market with your post-injury limitations.

No matter what type of on-the-job accident you suffered, our attorneys will help you pursue the medical and wage benefits you deserve. If you cannot return to the health care field because of limitations from a work injury, an attorney is necessary to help maximize your vocational benefits.
