Back Injury • Neck Injury • Spinal Cord Injury
We have helped hundreds of clients secure workers’ compensation benefits or lump sum disability settlements for a spectrum of work-related injuries, including aggravation of existing conditions or prior injuries:
- Bulging disc/herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Nerve impingement
- Paraplegia, quadriplegia and partial paralysis
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal curvature
- Back strains
- Neck sprains
- Neuropathy/radiculopathy (chronic pain)
Most clients report a pop or a burn that occurred while bending, lifting or performing some specific work-related activity. But back and neck injuries can also be a cumulative trauma from repeated strain on that area of the body.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Back Injury
Proper treatment is key to recovery or minimizing the extent of injury and permanent loss of function. Unfortunately, many employers and their insurance carriers are skeptical of back injuries — rejecting legitimate claims or resisting employees’ requests to see the specialists who can provide optimal care.
Attorney Lou Lombardi has represented claimants for the past 18 years. Before that, he spent 10 years he spent in insurance defense, so he knows workers’ comp claims from both sides. He is meticulous in documenting claims and appeals and aggressive in asserting the rights of his clients.
If you have radiating pain (sciatica), numbness or weakness in your lower back, it is an indication of possible nerve damage. Promptly inform your employer, even if you cannot point to a specific work-related incident, and seek medical treatment.
