Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Claims
Generally, if you are injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits cover a certain percentage of your lost wages as well as the cost of your medical care. Workers’ comp is available to those injured on the job as well as workers who develop conditions as a result of their line of work. This includes carpel tunnel, back injuries from lifting, neck strain injuries and other repetitive stress injuries.
If your back and neck injuries were caused by a negligent third party, regardless of whether it was at work, you may have a personal injury claim. This could include back and neck injuries from a car accident, slip and fall or as a result of medical malpractice. In a personal injury case, you may be able to recover medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for your pain and suffering.
