We Help Those Who Have Suffered Back Injuries On The Job Get Compensation

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, every year, over 600,000 employees across the United States experience back injuries that lead to disability. Hundreds of thousands more suffer injuries that keep them from working temporarily. This is not a small issue. If you are one of the many individuals who has suffered a work-related back injury, let us help you get the medical care and financial compensation you need. We serve clients who work in Staten Island and Brooklyn, including clients who commute from New Jersey.

There are many ways in which you may suffer a back injury while on the job. The first is as a result of some sort of trauma such as a fall or another type of accident. The second is as a result of repetitive movements, often seen in lifting injuries. If you have an existing back problem, you may be more prone to experience a back injury in the workplace. No matter how it happens, when it does, it can affect you physically, financially and emotionally now and in the future.

Achieving Full Benefits Is Not As Easy As It Should Be

New York workers' compensation laws were enacted to protect you and provide you the benefits and medical care you need when you are unable to work due to an injury. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for insurance carrier doctors to downplay the seriousness of your injury in order to reduce your benefits. For example, after suffering a back injury, the insurance company physician assigned to your case may minimize your diagnosis and level of disability in order to reduce your benefits.

An experienced attorney can help you make sure you get appropriate treatment and compensation regardless of pre-existing conditions, legal status or employment classification.
