Back And Neck Injuries Atlanta Back And Neck Injury Attorney

Back and neck injuries can cause pain and disability for weeks, months, and, in some cases, even years.  Many workers are prone to back and neck injuries, especially those workers who perform heavy lifting, frequent twisting, loading cargo, bathing and transferring patients, repetitive work, overexertion, or driving long distances.  Workers who suffer back and neck injuries often include:

  • Airport Workers
  • Assembly Line Workers
  • Baggage Handlers
  • Construction Workers
  • Delivery Workers
  • Fabricators
  • Factory Workers
  • Laborers
  • Nurses & Nursing Assistants
  • Sheet Metal Workers
  • Stock Clerks
  • Warehouse Employees

The Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act covers neck and back injuries resulting from traumatic accidents as well as those back and neck injuries caused by repetitive motion, repetitive stress, and repetitive work activities.  The Georgia Workers’ Compensation Act also covers aggravations of pre-existing conditions and prior injuries, so if your work has caused or contributed to your current back and neck pain, you likely will be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Bader Scott Injury Lawyers handles all types of back and neck.  Back and neck injuries that we handle on a regular basis include:

              • Arachnoiditis
              • Bulging Discs
              • Cervical Disc Fracture
              • Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
              • Degenerative Disc Disease
              • Failed Back Syndrome
              • Herniated Discs
              • Lumbar Disc Fracture
              • Muscle Strains
              • Nerve Damage
              • Nerve Impingement
              • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
              • Ruptured Discs
              • Spinal Fractures
              • Spondylosis (Spinal Arthritis)
              • Subluxation Sprains

Obtaining a proper diagnosis of a back or neck injury is critical and this usually requires an MRI or CT Scan because X-rays do not reveal nerve damage.  Despite this fact, “company doctors” rarely order an MRI and CT Scan, instead choosing to conclude that the injured worker has little, if anything, wrong simply on the basis of an X-ray.

Back and neck injures often can be properly treated only through a surgery such as a laminectomy, a discectomy, or a fusion.  Regardless of whether surgery is necessary, workers suffering from back or neck injuries usually require pain management treatment to control their symptoms.  Pain management may include pain medication, physical therapy, facet blocks, epidural injections, steroid injections, and spinal cord stimulators.  Whether you need surgery, pain management, or both, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will work to get you the best possible medical treatment available under the law.
