Welcome to the WING USA Attorney Page

"It’s awful.  You’re injured.  You’re disposable.  And now you need an attorney.”  1-29-05

WING USA is pleased to provide the new Attorney Page with maxlift contact information for attorneys knowledgeable and experienced in representing injured nurses. 

A goal of WING USA is to list attorneys in each state to help nurses in every area obtain the legal assistance they often need after being injured at work. 

From one attorney:

“I practice workers' compensation and personal injury. I have represented many nurses over the years and I am well aware of how my clients are so quickly treated as outcasts when they get hurt badly, usually doing what nurses do, protecting their patients.”

Richard A. Manger, Attorney at Law

Nurses, Add Your Attorney

If your attorney is knowledgeable about nurse injury and successful with nurse cases, and would like to be included on WING USA’s Attorney Page, have him/her email their contact info, with any statement they may wish to include, to Anne Hudson at anne@wingusa.org

The attorneys listed below have proven track records of success with workers’ compensation and/or social security disability claims of nurses and other healthcare workers. 

Note:  There can be no guarantee regarding the outcome of any person’s case.

Mr. Viel’s workers’ compensation practice dates back to 1979.  At that time, Mr. Viel began devoting his practice exclusively to Workers' Compensation and Social Security Disability claims.  Because of that specialization, we handle more workers’ compensation claims in one year than some attorneys might handle in a lifetime.  Mr. Viel’s office handles workers’ compensation claims for the

state of Michigan – primarily those cases within west central and northwestern Michigan, although we have a network of experienced attorneys to refer cases to that are out of our jurisdiction.  Furthermore, we work on a contingency fee basis; this means that there is NO FEE to the client unless monies are recovered.  Expenses of litigations (which are the client's responsibilities) are kept to a minimum and are generally advanced by the firm.  With offices in Big Rapids and Traverse City, a toll free number, free consultations, and two paralegals on staff, the Law Office of Mark W. Viel has made it convenient to counsel with and retain the services of an experienced attorney – at the lowest possible cost to a claimant.  Please visit our website at www.markviel.com for further information, or call us at 1-800-924-2915 to talk about your potential claim today!

A partner in the largest firm representing injured workers in Pennsylvania, I have represented many nurses and nurse assistants in their various injuries due to the demands of the nursing field. I have litigated claims on behalf of nurses and nurse assistants for injuries and diseases contracted in the workplace, including, but not limited to repetitive lifting injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, hepatitis, and latex allergies. My firm also specializes in Social Security Disability claims.

Additionally, I was successfully able to reveal a wage violation by a large visiting nurse company in Pennsylvania that was not paying wages for travel time or overtime which resulted in a class action that resolved for more than $3 million to the nurses.

I would like to participate in your network of workers' compensation attorneys accepting referrals from injured nurses.  By way of brief background, I hold a BA from The College of William and Mary (1983) and a JD from Emory University (1986).  I began my legal career as a US Navy JAG attorney, based primarily in San Diego. 

After serving my country, I returned to my home state of Pennsylvania and settled in suburban Philadelphia.  Since then, I have successfully represented literally hundreds of injured workers throughout eastern Pennsylvania.  I have achieved top-dollar lump sum settlements for countless injured clients.  Perhaps the best testimony to the quality of my practice is that former clients still refer cases to me a decade or more after I resolved their claims. 

Under Pennsylvania law, I do not receive a fee unless I achieve benefits for the injured party.  I would be happy to consult free of charge with any injured nurses in your network.
