What To Do If You Suffered A Back Injury At Work
Work-related back and neck injuries are all too common. Many workers are surprised to find themselves in pain after performing tasks that seem safe, tasks they perform every day.
Whether you or a loved one was injured while lifting, pulling, pushing or engaging in repetitive movements, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. The law provides medical benefits and wage replacement to employees who qualify, even if their injuries did not occur through a one-time accident.
After an injury, it is important to do two things: 1) Get proper medical care as soon as possible, and 2) Talk to a knowledgeable workers' comp attorney. Taking these steps can help you safeguard your health and your financial situation.
