Securing Compensation For Your Workplace Back And Spine Injuries
Most manual labor jobs put a great deal of stress on the body. Whether a person is working in construction, at a meatpacking plant or even in a restaurant, the constantly repeated motions can wear the body down.
At Noack Law Office, we know that every human is different. Two people could perform the same job in the exact same way. After a year, one person may feel fine, while the other is in constant pain. Regardless of the job you’re in, if you are suffering back pain because of the work you’re doing, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Our attorneys represent injured workers who are suffering from:
- Herniated disks
- Bulging disks
- Ruptured disks
- Slipped disks
- Back strains and back sprains
- Neck injuries
- Spine injuries
- Spinal cord impingement
- Lower back injuries
What If I Had A Pre-Existing Back Condition?
When an employer hires a worker, they take the employee as he or she comes — with any pre-existing or existing injuries and weaknesses. Injured workers are eligible for compensation even if the worker had a pre-existing condition in the same body part.
It doesn’t matter if an employee already had back pain or spinal injuries. If the employee’s current work aggravated or exacerbated the back injury, it’s considered a work-related injury, and the employee may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
