A serious neck or back injury is a painful, debilitating problem that can challenge you for the rest of your life. At CT Injury Lawyers, our neck and back injury lawyer specialists know that neck, spine, disc, and back injuries require long-term care and support.
Unfortunately, back injuries are not always taken seriously. But our workers’ compensation lawyers have the experience to make sure your claim gets the attention it deserves. We know how the insurance industry works and can get you the workers’ compensation benefits you need to move on with life.
Taking Your Back Injury Seriously
If you or a loved one has suffered a back injury, it is important to consult with a back injury lawyer as soon as you are able. You will need to be compensated for your injuries, and litigation may be required to make sure you have the resources to obtain an adequate recovery.
If you are injured at work in the State of Connecticut, you should always report it to your supervisor and seek immediate medical treatment. Always remember to tell the doctor how your injury happened.
Once a doctor establishes the cause of the injury, your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier will pay for your medical bills. If your injury leaves you totally disabled, you are entitled to receive a weekly benefit for the weeks that you are disabled and unable to work- up to 75 percent of your regular take-home pay.
Our lawyers provide individualized service and proven legal representation to injured workers across Connecticut. We have learned a great deal about the medical diagnosis and treatment of various neck and back injuries, including:
- Lower back injuries
- Spinal cord injury/paralysis
- Cervical injuries (neck)
- Herniated disks
- Fractured vertebrae
- Nerve impingements
You Are Not Alone
About 80% of adults are estimated to experience a back injury in their lifetime, and about 10% will suffer a re-injury. In the United States, back disorders account for over 24% of all occupational injuries and illnesses involving days away from work, according to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health.
When you are injured, it is important to conduct an investigation into the cause of the injury, its nature and extent, and to gather and preserve evidence and witness testimony. Experienced back injury lawyers will know the proper steps that need to be taken to secure your rights.
