Get Legal Advice After A Back, Neck Or Shoulder Injury On The Job
How well will you recover after your back, neck or shoulder has been seriously hurt at work? The answer to this question may depend on the quality and timeliness of the medical care you receive from the start. Your doctors may recommend surgery, ask you to wear a neck or back brace, tell you to rest and/or prescribe treatments and therapies designed to alleviate your pain and suffering while accelerating your healing.
While getting access to top-notch medical care is important for your overall recovery, it is sometimes difficult to achieve. To protect your right to all workers’ compensation benefits you are eligible for, we encourage you to seek legal advice along with the medical evaluations you may receive. At DDB Law, initial consultations are free. If we represent you, we will do so on a contingency basis. You will not owe attorney fees unless we help you obtain compensation.
Common Causes And Effects Of Back, Neck And Shoulder Injuries
You may have been hurt at a construction, retail, manufacturing or medical care job. Your injury may have come about through a sudden accident or it may have developed over time through repetitive motion and stress caused by work activities. Some people call these “wear-and-tear” injuries due to the correlation between job requirements and resulting injuries.
No matter how your injury developed, your natural concerns are to get well and to get by financially despite reduced or ceased wages if you cannot work. Workers’ compensation benefits may fill in some of the gaps but denials and delays in the delivery of benefits are unfortunately common. The lawyers at DDB Law have helped many clients overcome such challenges and get the benefits they deserved.
We Will Help Ensure That You Receive All Available Compensation
In addition to workers’ compensation, you may have other avenues of financial relief if a person or entity other than your employer contributed to or caused an accident that injured you. Our attorneys evaluate every workers’ compensation case for potential third-party liability claims, as well.
