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.
