Maintaining Financial Stability after a Neck Injury at Work

    You could hurt your neck on the job because of a sudden trauma, like a fall or vehicle accident, or because of wear and tear from repetitive movements over time.

    Some people may be lucky enough to heal following short-term treatment. But many neck injuries cause chronic, long-term pain that can spread to your shoulders, hands, legs or other parts of your body.

    If a neck injury from work is affecting your life, workers’ compensation benefits are designed to offset your medical bills, lost wages, and costs of permanent impairments caused by your workplace injury.

    But getting benefits is hard because the workers’ compensation system is set up to make it that way. You’re not sure what you’re entitled to, and workers’ comp insurance companies will take advantage of that to offer you less.

    An experienced Louisiana workers’ comp attorney will make the process much easier for you. They’ll look out for your best interests and help you get benefits that can put you on stable financial ground, letting you concentrate on what’s most important: your health.
