Advocating For Health Care Heroes

At Gesmer & Reynolds, P.C., our lawyers advocate for health care workers who sustain injuries on the job. These injuries can be devastating for both your personal and professional life. With over 50 years of combined experience, our attorneys understand the unique challenges nurses, CNAs, orderlies, paramedics, physical therapists, occupational therapists, surgical techs and home health aides face.

We Understand The Injuries You Face

Health care professionals are the backbone of our medical system. They often work in demanding environments where accidents can happen. The risks are numerous, including:

  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs): Repetitive lifting, bending and awkward postures can lead to strains, sprains and back injuries. These can limit mobility and make it difficult to perform daily tasks, both at work and at home.
  • Sharps injuries: Accidental pricks from needles or scalpels can transmit serious bloodborne illnesses. The emotional stress of potential infection can be significant, on top of any physical injury.
  • Slips, trips and falls: Busy health care settings can have wet floors, cluttered walkways and uneven surfaces. These can lead to falls that cause broken bones, head injuries and other physical trauma.
  • Workplace violence: Health care workers are at risk of assault from patients, visitors or even co-workers. These incidents can cause physical injuries, as well as emotional distress and PTSD.

Our workers’ compensation team comprehends the complexities of these injuries and the impact they can have on your livelihood.
