Nurse Falls at Work Causing Injuries to Back and Knee

Julie, a Registered Nurse, was helping a patient get back into bed. She got a hoister lift and while positioning the lift, she fell forward causing injuries to her left knee and back.

She immediately went to the emergency room and was told she had a contusion of the left knee and lumbar strain. She was given an adjustable cane and informed to follow up with her physician. Julie’s doctor referred her to physical therapy and prescribed a muscle relaxer for her back. She started physical therapy, but her back pain persisted. Her physician gave her an anti-inflammatory medication and told Julie that she needed to remain out of work. Julie had a second opinion with a physiatrist due to low back pain and leg pain. The physiatrist recommended injections for her back.

Julie contacted Attorney Jim Brady for a case evaluation. Her ongoing back and leg pain prevented her from returning to her position. A claim was filed for Social Security Disability benefits and benefits were awarded. She also received a significant lump sum settlement from the worker’s compensation insurer.

Cruise Line Accident

Charlie took his family on vacation to the Caribbean on a well-known cruise line. He was attending a show in the ships theater. Prior to the show, Charlie went up on stage to take some pictures. There were no signs posted prohibiting passengers from going on stage. As he climbed up the steps and turned left to go onto the stage, he fell 6 feet into the orchestra pit causing him to fracture his right elbow. Obviously, the hole was such that it could not be seen as both the stairs and the pit were painted black. The lighting was very poor.

Charlie was in excruciating pain. He was examined by the ship’s doctor and an IV was started. X-rays of his elbow were required. Pain medication was given. He was monitored and later his right arm was put in a sling. Due to the limited medical resources onboard the ship, Charlie was advised to seek treatment by an orthopedic physician at the next port of call, which he did. More X-rays were taken which revealed an epicondylar fracture to the right elbow. Clearly the ship failed to warn Charlie and all the other passengers of the danger.

If injuries are sustained, Attorney Jim Brady and Associates recommends keeping precise documation of your injuries. Charlie contacted Attorney Jim Brady for a comprehensive case evaluation. A successful claim was brought against the cruise line and monies were recovered on Charlie’s behalf to compensate him for his pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills incurred for this significant injury.

Ann was a passenger in a vehicle that was struck from behind at the intersection of Washington Street and Clarendon Street in Boston.

She felt immediate pain in her lower back. Later in the day Ann went to the emergency room because of increased pain which began to radiate down into her right hip and knee.

Nursing Home Malpractice: Accidents & Injuries

The “sandwich” generation is the new term coined for persons who are taking care of their children and their elder parents at the same time and typically in the same home. It has become a very common family scenario in America. Adding to an already stressful situation is realizing that a parent needs more care than you are able to provide and a nursing home is unavoidable. Unfortunately with so many nursing home neglect and abuse cases in the news, it’s hard not to worry about accidents and abuse happening while your loved one is under someone else’s care.
