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.
