Back Injuries On The Job
Back injuries are one of the most common workplace injuries. Because so many jobs require lifting, bending, twisting and other motions, a back injury can happen to almost anyone. The resulting condition can cause pain, numbness, loss of mobility and sometimes even paralysis in extreme cases. The benefits from a successful workers’ compensation claim can make the difference for financial stability. However, the injured worker often has to fight hard to get a fair settlement, something the insurance company makes exceedingly difficult.
By hiring the experienced attorneys at Nicolet Law Office, you will have proven advocates in your corner who can level the playing field. We have served injured workers in Wisconsin for a long time and have the successful track record to prove it.
A strong back is required for just about every aspect of life, which is why back injuries are so damaging. They are typically associated with repeated lifting over time or else lifting a single heavy object. We have represented clients with many different conditions, including:
- Herniated discs
- Fractured vertebrae
- Acute, persistent pain
- Ruptured discs
- Soft tissue damage
- Whiplash and resulting complications
Is My Injury Covered?
As long as it happened while you were at work and the activities were in the scope of your job, you qualify for workers’ compensation. Your employer and their insurance company may try to convince you that your discomfort is actually due to a preexisting condition, but our lawyers will get the appropriate documents to show the truth. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation process is complex and the system shuts out many people who have legitimate claims. Do not let that happen to you.
