Spinal injuries may be less common but can cause paralysis and a lifetime of disability. The Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., has represented injured New Jersey workers for over 50 years. Attorney Ken Kaplan handles the most complex and severe workers’ compensation matters to help his clients obtain the highest amount of benefits available to them.
After Many Years Or In An Instant
Like a neck injury, a back or spinal cord injury can happen in a sudden on-the-job accident or after years of physically demanding labor. Either way, such injuries are notoriously difficult to treat. Even reducing the pain of a back injury to a manageable level is not always possible.
Common causes of work-related back injuries include:
- Lifting and carrying heavy objects
- Twisting and unnatural stances
- Trip-and-fall accidents
- Auto accidents
Over time, grueling manual labor can damage back muscles, ligaments and spinal disks. The damage can reach the point that you need to stop working and cannot earn an income to support yourself and your family.
Possible Workers’ Compensation Awards
If you have suffered a back or spine injury at work, you might qualify for substantial workers’ compensation. Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, you might qualify for temporary total benefits, permanent partial benefits or permanent total benefits. These benefits would help you pay your medical bills and make up for your lost income. The Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., focuses completely on workers’ compensation law. The firm has helped thousands of people navigate New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law and get approved for maximum benefits.
