Nurse Job Injury, Attacked by Patient | Work Injury Lawyer | $165,000 Workers Compensation Settlement

January 27, 2014

A nurse was attacked by a patient, causing injuries to her two front teeth, numbness on the left side of her face and nose, neck and back spasms, and headaches. She came under medical care and remained out of work due to her injuries. The employer filed petitions to both terminate her workers’ compensation benefits and to challenge the medical care she was receiving for her work injury. Jerry Lehocky filed a petition to reinstate the injured worker’s benefits and a penalty petition, since the employer lacked authority to refuse to pay workers’ compensation benefits. Mr. Lehocky settled the case for $165,000.00.
