Helping Injured Nursing Home Workers Get Their Rightful Workers’ Compensation
The nurses, aides and other employees of New Jersey’s nursing homes and long-term care facilities are essential to keeping vulnerable seniors safe, healthy and comfortable. But, when a nursing home worker suffers a job-related injury, they become the one who needs help. At Devlin, Cittadino & Shaw, P.C., our lawyers have extensive experience representing injured nursing home employees and helping them obtain workers’ compensation benefits.

A Difficult, Physical Job
Being a nurse or aide in a long-term care facility is difficult, physically demanding work. It requires you to spend long hours helping residents bathe, get dressed, take their medication, eat and do other everyday tasks. You must frequently lift and carry people. Over time, the effort can take a toll on your back, neck and joints. Eventually, you might need surgery or other treatment for pain, stiffness or weakness.
If your workers’ comp application was denied, don’t give up. Many nursing home employees and people in other fields get denied workers’ compensation despite having strong cases. Success on appeal is possible. Our attorneys work diligently with each workers’ compensation client to build a strong claim for benefits backed by medical records and other evidence. Those benefits can help you pay for your needed medical care and remove financial pressures while you recover.
