Florida Work Comp Spinal Cord Injuries

June 26, 2013

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that falls and traffic accidents result in up to 20,000 spinal cord injuries every year. In many states, including Florida, spinal cord injuries result from workplace accidents on a regular basis. Many of our clients report low back, mid back and neck injuries that result from work accidents and or injuries after a fall, a motor vehicle accident, a lifting injury or being struck or hit in the workplace.

Victims of spinal cord injuries are faced with a lifetime of debilitating pain, restricted range of motion and possible paralysis. At the Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt, we have more than 50 years combined experience helping the victims of workplace spinal cord accidents. We have seen how spinal cord injuries affect the victims and their family. Spinal cord injuries often result in an injured worker not being able to return to their former field of employment and incur costly future medical care that can range in the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

After suffering from a spinal cord workplace injury, you must protect your ability to receive medical care and recover lost wages from your employer's workers' compensation insurance company. Failure to preserve your claim immediately after your accident can result in the loss of essential benefits to which you are entitled to under the law. Do not rely on your employer's promises that they will take care of you and pay your medical bills.

Do not wait until it is too late. A spinal cord injury should not be taken lightly. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury you need to be seen by a specialist right away. Medical care is available, and the sooner you receive appropriate care, the faster you can start your recovery. If your employer fails to report your injury, if your work comp adjuster refuses to provide you medical care or your workers' compensation doctor ignores your requests for medical care, don't delay, call The Law Offices of Franks, Koenig & Neuwelt to speak with a dedicated workers' compensation attorney for a free and confidential consultation today.
