On the job neck injuries are common, but they can be exceptionally painful. Whether a neck injury results in sudden pain or a build up of pain gradually over time, it can have detrimental effects on your daily life and your ability to work to earn a living. While some neck injuries sustained while working are minor and will heal without long term effects, others are more serious and may require surgeries, medications and extensive physical therapy.
If you have suffered from a neck injury while performing your work duties, you may be eligible to file a workman’s compensation claim to have your medical care relating to the injury covered. However, many employers do not want employees who have been injured to file workman’s comp and will do everything they can to avoid it, including blaming the employee for the injury or making it look like it was his or her fault instead of the employer’s or the company’s.
You deserve to be fully compensated for your injuries and your medical costs should not come out of your own pocket. At the Law Offices Of Michael J. Holmes, we can assist you in not only filing a workman’s compensation claim but also a personal injury claim in the event that a third party contributed to or was responsible for your injury.
