A nursing assistant, with significant pre-existing conditions, was injured at work when she was assaulted by a resident for whom she was caring. She suffered injuries to her shoulder, her hand, her neck, and suffered from PTSD as a result of the incident. The insurance company eventually denied the client’s wage loss benefits claiming the injured worker was not making an adequate job search, as well as denying her ongoing medical treatment. We filed a claim petition on her behalf. We eventually secured a settlement in the amount of $115,000 to help the injured worker pursue retraining options at her own pace, and future medical treatment was left open.
