New York Spinal Cord Workplace Injury Lawyer
Dedicated and Experienced Work Accident Attorneys in NYC
Back and spine injuries on the job can be devastating to a worker and their
family. A neck or spinal cord injury is extremely painful and can cause
permanent damage. Back and spine injuries are one of the most common work
injuries affecting employees in the United States. The New York workers’
comp system provides a means for injured workers to receive spinal cord
injury settlements for their medical care and for their lost time from
work. Employers have
workers’ compensation insurance policies that cover the injuries and lost wages for the injured
worker. If you have suffered a back injury on the job, you need a New
York spinal cord injury lawyer who can represent you and make sure that
the insurance company compensates you fairly.

Does my injury qualify for workers' comp?
A back injury can happen in any profession, but there are certain types
of employees that are more likely to hurt their back at work. These professions include
construction workers, warehouse workers, delivery employees, landscapers, and any other job
that requires lifting. Nurses can also sustain serious back injuries from
lifting and moving patients. There are specific workplace safety rules
for the amount of lifting and the ways that heavy objects are supposed
to be moved. Regardless of these safety protocols, sometimes employers
do not follow them, and therefore have their workers lifting too much
or lifting large amounts without assistance.
Back injuries vary in their type and severity. The spinal cord contains
seven cervical vertebrae, twelve thoracic vertebrae, and five lumbar vertebrae,
all of which are at risk of injury.
Back injuries can include bulging discs, ruptured discs, pinched or damaged nerves,
or trauma to the spinal cord, which can cause paralysis. The spinal column
is also surrounded by muscle tissue that can be sprained or strained in
the course of employment. If you have experienced any of these serious
injuries and complications due to a work accident, you need to speak with
a Manhattan workers’ comp attorney about filing a claim for spinal
cord injury compensation.

All of these injuries can be excruciatingly painful to the victim and will
also render a person immobile while they recuperate. Back injuries often
require surgical intervention, pain medication, and extensive physical
therapy. This results in burdensome medical bills and long absences from
work, or, in some cases, permanent disability. If this has happened to
you or someone you love, you should seek representation in your NY workers’
compensation claim so that you receive a fair settlement.
