Disciplinary Action · Employment Discrimination · Job-Related Injuries
Nursing is an important but often thankless and even dangerous job. Nurses have one of the highest injury rates of all occupations, and one of the highest rates of job burnout. The injuries and hours and stress can lead to personal hardships, employment conflicts and legal issues.
The Law Offices of David Aden represents nurses, medical technicians and other personnel in the health care industry. I am both a lawyer and a licensed nurse who formerly worked in nursing and health care administration. This background helps me advocate effectively for health care workers in a broad range of legal matters.
As a solo attorney, you will work directly with me. I practice law in New Orleans and surrounding parishes of southeast Louisiana.
Metairie Health Care Employment Disputes Attorney
From my experience in hospitals and health care, I have unique insights into employment issues involving: nurses and nurse practitioners, aides and orderlies, lab workers and technicians, pharmacists, custodians, cafeteria workers and security guards.
- Professional licensure — I can represent nurses (RNs and LPNs) in disciplinary matters before the Louisiana State Board of Nursing. I will fight suspension or other sanctions against your nursing license relating to drug addiction, misappropriated narcotics, medication errors, ethical violations or violating protocols of patient care.
- Employment discrimination — I represent licensed or nonlicensed personnel in actions against medical facilities for sexual harassment, age discrimination or other discrimination, FMLA violations, or retaliation or wrongful termination. My goal is to maximize compensation without jeopardizing your future prospects in the health care field.
- Workplace injury— Nurses, orderlies and other health care workers are prone to back injuries from lifting patients, slip-and-fall injuries, assaults by patients, equipment injuries and other on-the-job accidents. I can assist with your workers’ compensation claims and any third-party personal injury claims.
