After An On-The-Job Accident Affecting The Neck Or Back
Many types of work, especially work involving heavy equipment and/or heavy loads to carry, put workers at risk of neck and back injuries that can be painful and disruptive. Health care workers, construction workers and factory workers are some of the most prone to neck and back injuries. However, neck and back injuries can happen anywhere, and when they do, the sufferer typically needs quality medical treatment as well as rest to recover to the fullest extent possible.
If your neck or back was injured on the job, you need and deserve the best evaluation and treatment available. Failure to get proper care early in your healing can leave you with chronic pain. Furthermore, you may be unable to continue working as you were before, without the medical care and therapy your injury requires. Do not let your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer deny your rightful benefits after a neck or back injury on the job.
Thankfully, The Law Office of Gretchen Hall in St. Paul has helped many injured workers obtain workers’ compensation benefits that were denied, delayed or insufficient before our involvement. We are proud of the support we have provided many workers with neck and back injury problems.
