Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
Buffalo Attorneys, Lewis & Lewis P.C., are alerting all medical employees in the Buffalo area about the likelihood of nurses and clinicians sustaining injuries at work. In response to a November 20th report by The Gazette, Lewis & Lewis is asking that all medical employees take better precautions to avoid injuries.
According to The Gazette, about 35 percent of nurses and clinicians have reported having at least on injury while on the job, with at least 24 percent of survey participants saying that movement and activities at their jobs needed to be modified at least once because of the injuries.
“When someone thinks of a work-related injury, they typically think it has something to do with construction or the like,” said Emily Downing, attorney at Lewis & Lewis. "It may seem difficult to believe that such a high number of nurses and clinicians are prone to injuries, but unfortunately, it makes a lot of sense."
Downing also said though many of the injuries taking place are due to outdated equipment, referencing the same November 20th article by the Gazette, nurses and clinicians are advised to take as many precautions as they can to limit the potential for injury by being aware of their surroundings and knowing how much weight they can reasonably lift without causing injury to themselves or to patients.
Lewis & Lewis attorneys are attempting to shed light on the number of on-the-job injuries that could occur in medical fields, and is asking anyone who has sustained this type of injury to come forward to see if they have a case.
