Disability Claims for Registered Nurses

Experienced Disability Attorneys

There are few jobs out there as physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing as nursing. Nurses are on their feet all day, moving from room to room, sometimes lifting and moving heavy patients and dealing with dangerous equipment. One prick of a misplaced needle could result in an occupational disease, or a serious slip and fall accident could cause a debilitating injury. Any injury or disease could seriously inhibit a nurse’s ability to work because of the physically demanding nature of the job. For this reason, it is important to protect your right to disability benefits if you are unable to meet the requirements of your position due to an injury you sustained.

If you were injured, our disability insurance attorneys can help you file for disability benefits, handle denied claims, or dispute a termination of benefits. At Dabdoub Law Firm, we are passionate about advocating for the rights of injured individuals and we are not afraid to go up against big insurance companies. We can handle everything in your case from start to finish, from claims to appeals, lawsuits, or settlement negotiations.

Nursing Demands

The job responsibilities of registered nurses are extremely taxing and can be very difficult to perform if the nurse has been injured. Nurses repeatedly lift and reposition bedridden patients, help them walk, move heavy equipment, and remain on their feet for the majority of every shift. Sometimes patients, especially those on pain medication or under the influence of recreational drugs, can be volatile and may harm healthcare workers. Or, angry family members of patients may become violent, which may threaten the well-being of any nearby staff.

There are numerous threats to registered nurses, which makes it all the more important for nurses to receive the disability benefits they deserve if they’ve sustained a serious injury.

Termination of Benefits

A frequent issue for registered nurses receiving benefits is that the long-term disability benefits will not last. All too often, insurance companies will target nurses’ disability claims, paying them at the onset of the injury or illness but terminating disability benefits later on down the road. Whenever possible, insurance companies will terminate benefits by claiming the disabled person can work in another occupation that is not as physically demanding.

However, starting over in a new profession is extremely difficult and can sometimes be impossible with the injured person’s current situation. If your benefits were terminated and you are still unable to return to work, contact our disability insurance attorneys. We can investigate the circumstances of your case, review your policy, and help you obtain the benefits you require.
