Work-Related Back Injuries
Back injuries are easily one of the most common injuries afflicting workers in North Carolina and throughout the United States. And anyone who has had even a “minor” back injury can appreciate just how debilitating it can be. If you are unable to work as a result of a back injury, it is crucial to know your rights.
At David & Associates, our attorneys represent workers with back injuries in Wilmington, Jacksonville and throughout southeastern North Carolina. This includes those with back injuries such as:
- Bulging disks
- Herniated disks
- Severe back spasms
These injuries can happen for any number of reasons, from lifting heavy objects to repositioning patients or stepping awkwardly off a ladder.
Lift heavy objects regularly as part of your job? You may have additional injuries such as a hernia that have contributed to your back injury. We will make sure you get the treatment you need and have the resources to make ends meet while you are unable to work.
Fighting Back Against The Insurance Company
Your employer’s insurance company will look for every way possible of minimizing what you are going through or attempting to blame you for your injury. It is not in its interest to do the right thing, so it will go to great lengths to avoid providing you with the benefits you are eligible for.
The truth is that you do not have to prove your back injury was caused by an accident to be eligible for workers’ compensation, and we will make sure you receive the benefits you deserve for wage loss and medical costs.
