Back and neck injuries can be excruciatingly painful. Because they are usually invisible to others, it can be frustrating to try to explain how much pain you are in. Financial stress can compound the problem. A serious lower back or neck injury can keep you from working, either temporarily or permanently. The pain may be so bad that you cannot sleep well, get out of bed or even walk, much less drive to work and put in a day. That’s where workers’ compensation comes in, and that’s where an experienced workers’ comp attorney can help.
We Can Give You Advice About Your Claim
Many back, shoulder and neck problems come from overuse, from doing the same movement over and over again for months or years, whereas others come from one-time accidents. At Bird, Stevens & Borgen, P.C., in Rochester, Minnesota, we represent workers in manufacturing, health care and other industries who have been hurt on the job. If you have questions about your workers’ comp claim, we can get you answers, and we can get you the benefits you are entitled to by law. Many of our clients wonder:
- What do I do if a QRC (qualified rehabilitation consultant) has contacted me?
- Do I have to see an independent medical examiner? Can’t I just go to my own doctor?
- I was hurt by lifting, twisting or pushing. What benefits can I receive?
- What do I say to my boss if I got hurt? How soon should I let him or her know?
- How do I cover my medical bills and immediate family expenses?
Every situation is different. Some workers are afraid of their employer finding out about their claim. We can explain your legal rights.
