Worker’s Comp Claims for Nurses, EMTs, Teachers and More

Service industry workers are some of this nation’s unsung heroes. Nurses, EMTs, paramedics, and teachers, just to name a few. They help us everyday and we would be lost without them.

So when you are a service worker and you’ve been hurt, you deserve the best care and the comfort of knowing that most of your lost wages will be paid to you by Massachusetts worker’s comp.


You know the long days, tiring conditions, and hazardous environments that you face every day. So when you are injured or become ill on the job, it’s important that you are paid back for all the hard work you do.

Nursing is one of the most accident-prone occupations. You can get hurt lifting a patient or doing other strenuous medical work, which can lead to injuries like torn rotator cuffs, herniated discs, and other painful injuries. Many nurses don’t report their injuries because they are afraid of being fired. But in Massachusetts, it is illegal to fire an employee for collecting worker’s comp.

Paramedics and EMTs

Working as an emergency medical responder is a naturally risky job. You are put in dangerous positions on a daily basis. Exposure to hazardous material or fire, dealing with violent patients, overexertion, and exposure to blood or pathogens are just some of the many ways you could be injured or harmed on the job as a medical technician. You do an incredibly important job and you deserve lawyers who will fight to get you the full worker’s compensation benefits you deserve.


Many people probably don’t understand all the health risks that teaching can include. As a teacher in a public or private school, you could be exposed to hazardous materials, stress injuries from repetitive motions, and even violence on campus. In order to play the many roles a teacher plays in any given day, you have to be healthy and injury-free. That’s why it’s so important for you to claim your benefits from worker’s comp.


Working as a custodian can be a physically grueling job. This puts you at more risk for job related injuries and illnesses. Heavy lifting, falling debris, and exposure to toxic chemicals are all ways a janitor or custodian could be hurt on the job. Overexertion and slips and falls are the most common ways a custodian gets hurt. Eden Rafferty is committed to helping the hardworking custodians of Massachusetts get their full worker’s compensation benefits. Don’t let insurance companies shortchange you.

Food service workers

Being a wait staff member or working in a kitchen or a restaurant is often a tireless, thankless job. It can also be dangerous. If you are a chef, line cook, waiter, waitress, bartender, busser, or other member of the food service industry who has been hurt on the job, it’s important for you to call Eden Rafferty today for a complimentary consultation. You can slip and fall, be cut by a sharp knife or be burned by hot food and be out of work for a long time–and maybe even permanently disabled. It’s imperative that you get the complete amount of worker’s comp benefits you deserve, and that’s where we come in.
