Back Injury Attorney
There are so many different ways that someone may sustain a back injury, but when someone else is at-fault, it’s important to speak with a back injury attorney about what happened. Victims of personal injury accidents, such as those that result in serious back injuries, may be owed compensation for the negligence or recklessness of someone else. Common examples of accidents that cause back injuries include car accidents, workplace accidents, and slips and falls. However, back injuries are not limited to only these types of incidents, as any situation where someone else is responsible for the injury to another is enough reason to contact Cohen & Cohen about receiving compensation.
Collisions can cause all kinds of bodily harm, but back injuries are especially common. Even minor collisions can cause back injuries that need medical attention. Rear-end accidents, in particular, tend to cause back injuries due to how the body gets jostled from the force of impact. Factors that affect the severity of back injuries include how fast the vehicles were traveling, the direction of the crash, whether either vehicle had rolled over, and if the occupants were wearing a seatbelt. Back injuries that can develop from car collisions are thoracic spinal injury, lumbar spinal injury, fractures, facet joint injury, and more.
Those who are injured in their workplace may receive coverage for medical treatment through a workers’ compensation program. However, there are many ways that an employee’s claim may be mishandled or denied wrongfully. We suggest contacting a back injury attorney if you have not received proper medical attention, your concerns are not being heard, your claim was turned in late despite filling it out timely, you are not receiving enough benefits based on your needs, or your employer has retaliated against you. We can make sure that you are treated fairly and that you get what you need to recover or manage a change in your physical health.
Slip and Falls
Slipping and falling onto a hard ground surface can wreak havoc on the body. If you fell, then you may have sustained an injury to your coccyx (tailbone), spinal cord, muscles, discs, joints, and more. In some slip and fall injury accidents, symptoms are short-term and go away on their own with rest. But for many others, more medical care is needed to attend to the back injury. If you slipped and fell recently and suffered an injury, we can help you get the restitution required to take care of your body. We know how stressful injury accidents can be on individuals and their families, and we are here to support you through it.
