Many lines of work contain certain dangers and carry inherent risks. Some workers know that, in their line of work, it's only a matter of time before they might be injured. When a worker in California is injured on the job, he or she is often entitled to file a workers' compensation claim in order to help cover the medical costs and wages lost.
It is no secret that nursing requires a great of physical work. Because of the nature of the job, many nurses, more than most other industries, have to contend with being injured at work. In California and elsewhere, nurses are banning together to help pass regulations that can help them avoid being injured on the job; and therefore losing the ability to do a job they have trained years for and love to do.
