Back and Neck Injuries
A workplace accident or repetitive stress injury can result in painful and debilitating back and neck injuries. Sometimes they are so serious, they may need surgery. Other injuries may require ongoing medical attention to help manage the pain
If you have sustained a back or neck injury at work, you are entitled to have your medical care paid for by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance policy. In addition, a portion of your weekly wages will be paid by workers’ compensation until you are able to return to work.
Legal Help for Injured Workers
People with back or neck injuries often need an advocate on their side in order to obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled by law to receive. Workers’ compensation insurance companies will argue that the pain is just a soft tissue injury that will heal on its own with time. They will deny authorization for expensive tests and procedures to diagnose and relieve your back or neck pain.
