Workers’ Compensation Overview

Back & Neck Injuries

Unfortunately, serious back and neck injuries are common on the job site. If your injury occurred on the job, contact our lawyers today for a free and confidential consultation. We will discuss your options and your rights as an employee.

Helping Individuals With A Wide Range Of Spinal Cord Injuries

The longer back and neck injuries are ignored, the more problems the delay can cause. If you have suffered a back or neck injury at work, it is important to contact a lawyer quickly. It is also extremely important to get immediate medical treatment. At Glass & Korein, LLC, we handle a variety of back and neck injuries, including:

  • Herniated disks
  • Aggravation of pre-existing degenerative disk disease
  • Spinal cord impingement
  • Myelopathy
  • Myeloradiculopathy
  • Shooting pains
  • Soft tissue trauma
  • Upper spinal cord injuries
    • Affecting all four extremities
  • Lower spinal cord injuries
    • Sexual dysfunction
    • Urological problems
    • Numbness or tingling in lower extremities
    • Drop foot

Aggravation Of A Pre-Existing Condition

Insurance companies and company representatives often try to deny that they are accountable for the back or neck injuries of an employee who has been injured in the past. For example, if you suffer from minor arthritis that would normally not affect your work, and your work conditions worsen that arthritis, your employers may owe you compensation. If you are over the age of 20 and have been asked to take an X-ray, chances are you will show some degeneration. This is a natural part of aging. Insurance companies may argue that natural degeneration is a pre-existing condition and that you do not have a compensable injury. Unfortunately, they do not have your best interests in mind. If you have talked to a company representative who stated that your pre-existing back or neck injury would not be covered, talk to our attorneys today. We will discuss your rights and fight for the compensation you deserve.
