Have You Been Injured on the Job?
At Smith & Baltaxe, LLP, we represent people from all occupations in workers' compensation suits. It is not only people with physically demanding jobs — construction workers, firemen — who suffer workplace injuries. An accountant can suffer a neck injury simply by working at his or her desk. A travelling salesperson can suffer a serious head injury by falling down a flight of stairs at a hotel. We help people who have suffered a wide range of head, neck and back injuries and conditions, including:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lower lumbar injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Herniated disk
Oftentimes, injured workers will not think of a back or neck injury as compensable. When trying to determine the cause of their injury, they may simply come to the conclusion that "it just got that way." But it is important to remember that all injuries have a specific cause, and that cause is often the daily "wear and tear" of mundane job activities. A workers' compensation injury does not have to be an obvious, one-time event; there are injuries that are difficult to detect, but no less damaging to a worker's health and earning potential. Our attorneys will help you with all aspects of your head, neck or back injury claim.
