Experienced Lawyers For Queens And Long Island Workers Injured On The Job
Back and neck injuries are by far the most common work-related injuries. A serious back or neck injury can affect your whole body and cause disabling pain, resulting in extended lost time from work. Fully half of all workers' compensation and Social Security Disability claims handled by our legal team are back and neck injuries. Yet employers and insurers tend to be skeptical of back injuries, and such claims are frequently denied.
If you hurt your neck or back in a workplace accident, or if the rigors of your job have damaged your spine, we are here to help. Turley Redmond Rosasco & Rosasco, L.L.P., has represented thousands of clients from Queens and Long Island in workers' compensation claims for back, neck and spinal cord injuries.
Workers' Comp For Back Injury And Neck Injury
Our lawyers have experience with the full spectrum of spinal injuries:
- Spinal cord injury (paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial paralysis)
- Cervical fracture (broken neck)
- Fractured vertebrae and broken tailbone
- Herniated disk (ruptured disk)
- Back strain (lumbar strain)
- Neck sprain (whiplash)
- Sciatica, back spasms and back pain
- Other spinal cord conditions
We commonly represent construction workers, warehouse employees, health care workers, municipal employees and other people whose jobs involve heavy lifting, frequent bending and twisting, other physical activities, or high risk of falling.
Hardworking Lawyers Advocating For Total Disability Benefits
Our job is simple — we work to maximize all your cash workers' compensation benefits so you and your family can survive economically while you are out of work. Unfortunately, insurance companies' "hand-picked" doctors commonly downplay or minimize back and neck injuries so they can cut your payments drastically. Medical treatment is crucial in spinal injury claims and only proper documentation from your doctor can help us maintain your highest benefit level.
From 25-plus years of representing workers with back and neck injuries, our attorneys know the medical and legal aspects of these claims. We strive to make sure clients get whatever medical care they need — medications, physical therapy, nerve blocking, pain management or surgery — including access to neurologists and other specialists. We also work to ensure that the medical records reflect the impact on daily life and our client's ability to work: shooting pains, weakness or numbness in the legs, reduced range of motion, inability to walk or stand, inability to bend or lift, sleeplessness or depression.
If you cannot return to your job or the same line of work, you deserve to be compensated for your loss of actual and potential earnings. We will pursue maximum disability benefits or a lump-sum settlement of your work-related back injury or neck injury claim. If your claim is denied or terminated, we can represent you in hearings and appeals to secure or restore your benefits.
