Malman Law understands that workers in the medical field have a career that requires patience and dedication when handling persons who are being treated with serious illnesses. Sometimes, when handling such sensitive patients, medical workers face dangers such as verbal and or physical abuse that can cause fear of work and even serious physical disabilities. Abuse such as this is taken seriously by Illinois attorneys—and the attorneys at Malman Law will do everything possible to make sure that a worker who was injured in a case like this is treated fairly under the laws of workers’ compensation.
If you are a worker, we want you to know that you have a right to safety. When this right is neglected, medical staff can be put in dangerous situations. For example, a nurse faced a life threatening situation when she worked in a psych ward. The nurse was caring for her patients when she was picked up and thrown by a unsafe patient. The nurse suffered severe injuries, including broken bones and teeth. Since this accident occurred, the nurse now suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and needs to take excessive medications for her injuries. Because of these damages, the nurse cannot return to work.
Accidents like this can cause a worker to not be able to return to a job that they may have once loved. It also causes lost wages and high medical bills. Fortunately, workers’ compensation is put in place in Illinois to protect workers who become victims in the work place.
