Job-Related Slipped Disc, Neck Strain or Chronic Back Pain? Let Us Fight For Your Justice!
Neck and back injuries are very common in workplaces, affecting millions of workers. Workers hurt on the job deserve workers' compensation benefits. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl help injured workers navigate the claims process to help them get the full amount of benefits they deserve.
Your back and/or neck may have been injured when you fell off a ladder, were lifting boxes in a warehouse, while operating heavy equipment on a construction site or in a business car accident or truck wreck. Whiplash, a broken collar bone, a slipped disc can result, as well as pinched nerves, which can cause the shooting pains of sciatica or numbness and tingling in fingers and toes. If you have work-related wrenched back or neck pain, let an understanding, experience, determined personal injury attorney fight for your restitution.
A workplace neck or back injury can happen in many different ways. It could be the result of heavy lifting, repetitive motion, overexertion, bending or twisting, a motor vehicle or equipment accident, or a slip and fall accident. However it happened, you are left in pain and unable to perform some of the responsibilities of your job.
The medical expenses for treating your neck or back injury can add up quickly. And if you are forced to miss work, you may lose income. The workers' compensation system is supposed to help when you've been hurt on the job. But the reality is that getting the benefits you deserve can be complicated.
Employers may question whether your injury was work-related. Insurance companies may dispute the extent of your injury, or whether certain treatment is really necessary. They may want you to be examined by a doctor of their choosing. In some cases, they may decide you are ready to go back to work, even though you are still in pain.
