For most people, suffering a spinal cord injury is a life-changing experience. It is something that you never expect to happen to you, and when it does happen, you are thoroughly unprepared for what comes next.
When you suffer a spinal cord injury (SCI), the medical bills will begin to pile up, and you may miss a significant amount of time from your job. It might even be that you are unable to return to work at all. How are you going to cover your expenses? In most cases, victims of work-related injuries can seek medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation.
While most people think of workers’ compensation as providing benefits for individuals who suffer injuries in traumatic accidents on the job, there are other types of injuries that can entitle injured employees workers’ compensation claims as well. In fact, when it comes to spinal cord injuries, there are four main types of injuries that can give rise to claims for workers’ compensation:
Like most serious injuries, employers and their insurance companies will often fight to avoid paying benefits for SCI. From refusing to respond to your requests for information to offering minimal settlements and delaying or denying benefits that are rightfully owed, these companies often use a variety of different tactics to evade their workers’ compensation obligations. Unfortunately, without legal help, many employees are virtually powerless to enforce their legal rights.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
