Neck, Back & Spinal Cord Injuries

Atlanta Neck, Back and Spine Injury Lawyer

Workers' Comp Neck, Back & Spine Injury Settlements in Georgia

Injuries to the neck and back are among the most common complaints among workers (and Americans in general). Yet, from a workers’ compensation perspective, they can also be among the most complex.

Such injuries are covered under the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act (GWCA), but your injury and the resulting chronic pain may require intermittent treatment over a period of years. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may need medical interventions that range from rest and physical therapy to surgery and prescription painkillers.

Because these cases are often complex and ongoing, you can likely save yourself a lot of frustration by working with an attorney from the beginning of the process. At The Law Office of Arthur E. Snead, LLC, an Atlanta workers’ compensation attorney is here to help.

Neck & Back Injuries Can Be Sudden or Cumulative

We often think of back and neck injuries as having a sudden onset resulting from a single on-the-job accident.

Common examples include:

  • A slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accident
  • Being struck from behind by a falling or swinging object
  • Lifting a heavy object incorrectly and feeling acute, intense pain
  • A motor vehicle accident, especially a rear-end crash that causes whiplash

It is important to understand, however, that such injuries can also be cumulative. Other than your arms and hands, your back likely suffers more wear and tear on the job than any other part of your body.

Neck and back injuries can develop over time due to:

  • Poor posture when sitting or standing for long periods of time
  • Inadequate, poorly designed seating
  • Being required to regularly lift heavy objects without proper training or support
  • Frequent trips up and down ladders
  • Doing work that requires you to constantly bend over or reach above your head
  • Emotional and psychological stress that causes your neck and back muscles to tighten

Acute injuries are easier to pinpoint as work-related and are therefore easier to document in a workers’ compensation claim. But with the help of an experienced lawyer, you can also file a strong claim showing that your back and neck injuries are cumulative and related to specific workplace conditions or problems.

Simply trying to prove an acute work-related injury can be a difficult process full of numerous hurdles; when it comes to cumulative injuries, the process is often even more complicated. Without a strong enough argument in your favor, as well as ample evidence to back your claim up, your claim may be denied. Having an experienced attorney on your side who is family with Georgia law and the GWCA can be an invaluable resource.
