Des Moines Spinal Injuries Lawyers
Part of the agreement between employer and employee is the promise of a safe workplace. When that agreement is violated, it can result in serious injury on the part of the employees. Certain injuries, especially spinal injuries, can occur over time and with increased stress on the worker. Spinal injuries are extremely delicate and have the potential to debilitate victims with severe pain, inflammation of nerves, loss of muscle control, and loss of sensation that can turn into paralysis, limited movement, and immobility.
If you feel that you or a loved one has been unfairly denied workers’ compensation by an employer, the Des Moines spine injury attorneys at LaMarca Law Group, P.C., may be able to help you get the financial support you need to help pay for costs to help you or your loved one recover from a workplace incident.
Common Workplace Spinal Injuries
Spinal injuries often occur as a result of heavy lifting, falls, and operating heavy machines. The most common symptom of spinal injury is constant or recurring pain. These painful injuries can include:
- Herniated discs
- Broken vertebrae
- Lower back pain
- Ligament tears
- Spinal fractures
Unfortunately, many of these injuries require multiple doctors’ visits to diagnose, treat, and resolve. This can become increasingly expensive and makes life for the injured party both physically and financially debilitating.
Pursuing Financial Compensation
Whether employer negligence is directly responsible for your spinal injury or it was just an accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation. Working with an attorney to obtain a settlement may help pay for:
- Medical bills (including doctor’s visits, prescriptions, treatments, and surgery)
- Loss of wages
- Cost of rehabilitative care
- Loss of employment value
- Emotional trauma
Although claiming compensation may seem like an unnecessary added stressor during a time of injury and pain, working with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney can streamline the process and help your case.
