Occupational Spine Injury Attorneys in New York

Call the Premier NYC Workers' Compensation Lawyers

The spinal cord is one of the most important entities in the body. Covered in a series of vertebrae, it carries the messages relayed from the brain to the rest of your body. It controls locomotive movements such as walking and hand movement, along with handling the senses in the body. Injuries to the spinal cord can be debilitating and sometimes fatal. Complete spine injury refers to when the spinal cord cannot send signals below the level of the injury. This can completely paralyze the body. Incomplete spinal injuries allow for some movement and sensation below the injury.

Occupational spinal cord injuries can change your life completely. They can require extensive treatments to manage the pain or to try to reverse the effects. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our New York City workers' compensation attorneys believe that employers have a responsibility to protect their employees from harm. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) established rules and regulations to provide safety standards. If employers violate these rules and a worker sustains a spinal injury, they may have grounds for compensation.

Common Causes of Occupational Spinal Cord Injures

Certain occupations are more at risk to cause spinal cord injuries. Construction workers, builders, movers, and others have physically demanding jobs. If employers do not provide the right safety gear and follow proper protocol, an injury can occur.

Common causes of occupational spine injuries include:

  • Falling from high places
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Being hurt by heavy machinery
  • Having an object pierce the spinal cord

While spinal cord injuries incurred at the workplace can never truly be reversed, there are treatments available—at a steep price. The recovery process can be long and arduous, however. A person may be out of work for a significant amount of time, causing a loss of wages. One of the chief reasons to call a workers' comp lawyer is to claim vital benefits like these.

Some treatments are:

  • Medications
  • Immobilization
  • Surgery
  • Experimental treatments

Occupational spinal injuries can cost you more than just lost wages. It will impact your quality of life. That is why, if you sustained a spinal cord injury while at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation.
