Many people understand and respect the hard work that health care professionals do. Few people realize that nurses and certified nursing assistants (CNAs) can have jobs that are physically demanding and even dangerous. These workers can be injured through accidents or overuse of labor. As an injured worker, you have the legal right to receive workers’ compensation benefits, but unfortunately, you may need to fight for them. In most cases, your employer’s insurance company will work hard to deny your workers’ comp claim or minimize its value. That’s why you should have an experienced lawyer who can advocate for your rights and prove clearly that you are hurt.
