Like back injuries, neck injuries can be painful, serious and debilitating. Workers frequently suffer neck injuries through certain movements or by falling. Particularly workers involved in assembly lines, warehouses, construction or health care may be susceptible to these injuries. What makes neck injuries unique is that they can have slow and counterintuitive onsets and symptoms that workers’ compensation insurance companies will try to take advantage of by limiting or denying benefits altogether.
If you or someone close to you suffered a neck injury on the job, get in touch with a skilled lawyer to understand your rights and to what extent you may be compensated.
We Know Neck Injuries
Because workers’ compensation is our sole focus, our attorney and team have cultivated a comprehensive knowledge of work-related neck injuries in our years of practice. This readies us to address issues related to:
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Spinal cord trauma, including paralysis
- Cervical (neck) injuries
- Fractured vertebrae
- Nerve impingements
- Neck muscle strains and pulls
Depending on the nature and extent of the injury, you may have felt a pop and pain radiating from the spot into your arms. Over the next day(s) or week(s) the symptoms may manifest into different types of pain, stiffness and movement restriction. It can also affect other body parts, particularly if nerve damage is involved. Get in touch with our firm as soon as possible so that you can fully understand your injury and your rights to what you may be compensated.
