• Surgery: A back injury may result in surgery. Not only can this be a painful process, but it can also result in significant medical bills.

• Restricted Movement: Back injuries are often associated with a loss of movement. If it’s painful to perform certain activities – you may experience restricted movement.

Benefits of Using a Workers’ Compensation Attorney After Your Back Injury

Seeking back injury compensation without an attorney can turn into a nightmare if you make mistakes. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation law is a complex field – which means your employer may take advantage of the law to deny you any benefits.

For this reason, it’s always a good idea to hire an attorney that has experience with back injury cases. It’s in your employer’s financial interest to play hardball – make sure you have an attorney that’s willing to fight on your behalf.

Don’t Delay a Back Injury Claim!

Unfortunately, many California workers make the mistake of delaying their back injury claims. Not only can this delay the onset of their benefits, but it can also leave them ineligible to receive any benefits at all. The state of California limits workers’ compensation claims to one year after the individual is aware of their injury.

In order to avoid this issue, it’s essential to begin claiming as soon as you’re aware of your injury. This can also speed up the length of time it takes to begin receiving compensation. This may be critical if you’re missing work or have upcoming medical bills.
