Tove Schuster, a nurse at Crozer-Chester Medical Center near Philadelphia, suffered a debilitating back injury while assisting colleagues in lifting a patient in March, 2010. As a result of her on-the-job injury, Schuster was unable to walk and had to undergo extensive surgery to repair her spine and regain her mobility. According to the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), nursing assistants sustain more work-related injuries than workers in any other occupation including construction workers, warehouse workers, truckers, and stock clerks. Only ten states currently have laws requiring hospitals to protect nursing staff from getting hurt while lifting patients. People who are injured in the workplace can contact a Workers’ Compensation lawyer to assist in securing the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages resulting from an injury.
