The back and neck can sustain a variety of injuries. Nerve issues, tears in ligaments, disc problems, cracked vertebra, muscle strains, just begin to encompass the types of issues involved in these areas. The cause of these issues can also vary- it can be sudden like from a fall or over time like from lifting heavy objects or tasks that require constant twisting or bending at the torso. Many back and neck injuries require lengthy treatment and rehabilitation. This as well as the ongoing pain and medical treatment leads to a loss of wages for missed work. These injuries can also result in partial or permanent disability or even paralysis at its most severe. These types of injuries encompass a large amount of workers’ compensation claims and Poirier Law has over 15 years of experience handling these kinds of filings. Call today for a free consultation.
