Workers’ Comp for Nurses
Illinois Attorneys Help Manage Your Claim
In the average 10-hour shift, a nurse can complete a wide variety of tasks, each with their own challenges. Some job duties of the average nurse are even accompanied with an inherit danger and risk of injury. If you ever get hurt while working as a nurse, then your employer should provide you workers’ compensation benefits through their insurance policy. Yet, do not be surprised if your employer or their insurer push back and try to minimize your benefits.

What Sort of Injuries Might a Nurse Suffer?
Your workplace as a registered nurse or nurse practitioner is a busy one. If something goes wrong, then you may suffer a serious injury on-the-job that stops you from continuing work for a while.
Injuries and illnesses associated with the nursing occupation include:
- Repetitive stress injuries, such as to the wrist or fingers
- Mental and emotional stress, depression, or anxiety
- Slip and fall injuries when carrying equipment or moving a patient
- Injuries caused by violent or unruly patients
- Occupational illnesses contracted by working with the ill
- Viral infections or bloodborne diseases
As described under workers’ compensation policies and related laws, any injury you suffer due to your work or in the capacity of your work should be covered. Responsibility for an injury-causing workplace accident should also be nonconsequential for your claim. In other words, you can admit that you made a mistake that caused you to get hurt and your workers’ compensation claim to full benefits should still be valid.
