Did you know that almost 20,000 nurses were hurt at work in Missouri during 2016? However, only 1,544 of those injured nurses filed a Missouri Workers Compensation Claim.
Our community relies upon skilled nurses, CNAs and home health aides to care for us during the worst times. When so many of our caregivers are hurt at work, we wonder who takes care of them. Based on our conversations with injured nurses, the work comp lawyers at BiState Law Center feel that many nurses at working hurt. Essentially, these nurses are hurt at work, but they do not take time off or file a work comp claim. Instead, they work through the pain and suffering and loss of mobility and strength. Theses injured nurses care so much about their jobs and their patients that they risk serious, long term injuries.
