Helping Injured Workers Recover Maximum Compensation
Back and spinal cord injuries can cause medical issues ranging from reduced mobility to severe pain and permanent paralysis. Any of these issues can prevent the injury victims from returning to work and caring for themselves. The victims and their families will need compensation to pay medical bills and other expenses.
Workers' compensation benefits include medical coverage and wage replacement for a portion of your income. However, you may need additional compensation to cover all of your losses. If a third party was at fault for your injury, the lawyers at Domnitz & Skemp, S.C., can file a personal injury suit on your behalf. For a free consultation, please call our Milwaukee spinal injury attorneys at 414-395-5832 or contact us online.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries Can Affect the Entire Body
Back injuries are one of the most common types of workplace injuries. Muscle tears and repetitive stress injuries can cause pain and numbness, but injuries to the spinal disks tend to be more severe. Persistent, debilitating pain can be caused by herniated disks, slipped disks, ruptured disks and fractured disks. Spinal disks can also pinch a spinal nerve, causing unbearable pain.
Back injuries often cause pain in other parts of the body such as the neck and extremities as well. Depending on the type and location of the injury, the victim may suffer paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. People with these conditions need a lifetime of medical care and, in some cases, daily care. The cost of such care is more than most people can afford. Workers' comp may cover part of the expense, but you may need additional compensation.
Third parties are often involved in workplace accidents, and may be a source of compensation. It may be a driver who caused a work-related vehicle accident, a subcontractor on a construction site or the manufacturer of defective safety equipment. Our attorneys will determine who is liable for your injuries and hold all parties accountable.
