Workers' compensation is vital for workers with spinal injuries

If you should ever be injured while on the job and the injury is properly treated, there is usually a good chance that you will enjoy a full recovery. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, you will probably be able to have your medical care covered by the workers' compensation program. Also, the human body has amazing healing properties that help us get back on our feet and back to work.

Unfortunately, there are some injuries that do not readily respond to medical treatment, nor do they tend to heal on their own. Specifically, back and neck injuries can linger for a long time and are all too often permanent. This is due largely to the complex nature of the spine. It can be very difficult to repair a fractured vertebra or a damaged disc. Even surgery may not fix the problem.

Almost anyone could suffer a spinal injury at work. And while those who engage in physical labor are more prone to such injuries, those who work at desks, in vehicles or at checkout stands are also vulnerable.

And worst of all, spinal injuries can be so painful as to be debilitating. If you suffer from such a condition, you may have trouble moving about and carrying on with your daily routine. You may even experience long bouts of severe pain that only strong medications can eradicate.

When filing a workers' compensation claim for a back or neck injury, there are a number of factors that you need to account for. For example, not only are there costs for treating your injury, but there are often costs inherent for recovery and rehabilitation.

At Angiuli & Gentile, we understand how to help our clients get appropriate compensation for their on-the-job injuries. We work to make sure that your costs will be covered. If you are suffering from a back or neck injury that is related to your work, please feel free to contact us to discuss the matter.
