Recovering From A Back And Neck Injury Due To Work
At Revens, Revens, St. Pierre & Wyllie, P.C., our attorneys handle workers’ compensation claims involving back and neck injuries of all types, including herniated disks, bulging disks, fractured vertebrae, nerve damage and injuries that cause radiating pain or numbness.
What Caused The Workplace Spine Injury?
Our back and neck injury lawyers have handled cases involving workplace accidents that immediately resulted in damage to the spine. We have also handled cases in which neck injuries or lower back injuries have developed over time because of repetitive motions, such as constant lifting of heavy objects. Lifting injuries are common in many workplaces.
In all cases, we must take care to prove that the injury was caused by work activities and that it prevents return to work. The way that the injury was suffered may impact how we handle the claim. For example, if a worker was injured in an on-the-job car accident, we may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the negligent driver who caused the accident, as well as a standard workers’ compensation claim.
