Work-Related Spinal Cord Injuries

The Perecman Firm has recovered more than half a billion dollars for injury victims.

Did You Suffer a Spine Injury at Work?

The spinal cord is an extremely sensitive and vital part of the human body. Any injury to the spinal cord can result in nerve damage, severe pain, and even loss of bodily functions. If you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury at work, you deserve fair compensation. Our NYC occupational spinal cord injury lawyers will fight hard to help you get it.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., our experienced attorneys help clients pursue workers’ compensation and personal injury claims after a work-related spinal cord injury. Our lead attorney, David Perecman, has been practicing New York law for more than 40 years, winning more than half a billion in verdicts and settlements along the way.

Common Causes of Herniated Disc Injuries

Certain occupations have a higher risk of spine 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.

One of the most common spinal cord injuries is disc herniation.

When the discs that sit between the vertebrae in the spine get damaged, they can bulge out, pressing on the surrounding nerves and causing substantial pain that will often worsen if it is not treated.

Common incidents that can cause a herniated disc include:

A herniated disc will not directly show up on a simple X-ray. More sensitive tests such as MRIs and CT scans are necessary to diagnose people who have suffered disc herniation.

If you are suffering persistent back pain after a construction accident or other work accident and your workers’ comp provider will not approve the testing you need, our attorneys are ready to fight to get the proper care you deserve.

Why It's Important to Seek Compensation

While spinal cord injuries suffered on the job 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 available in these cases include:

  • Medications
  • Immobilization
  • Surgery
  • Experimental treatments

Occupational spine 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 should not hesitate to contact an experienced attorney.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we 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.
