Accidents in the workplace happen frequently. When people work on dangerous jobs, they are at risk of serious injuries that can leave them with lasting impacts to their future. One can be burdened with medical bills, lost wages, and the inability to return to work. When these injuries involve the spinal cord, a person’s future can be devastated. Spinal cord injuries can impact your ability to walk, be intimate, use your arms, and even breathe properly. Spinal cord injuries can be caused by a variety of situations, including slip and fall, motor vehicle, and workplace accidents. In some serious situations, you could be impacted by continuing and permanent suffering, weakness, and numbness in your back and extremities. Though some of these cases can be handled through workers’ compensation, others might need to involve a lawsuit against a third party. Whether you are filing a claim for workers’ compensation or filing a third party lawsuit, you should contact an attorney immediately.

Insurance companies and spinal cord injuries

Insurance companies are always looking to save money. They will explore any way to not pay you for your serious injury. Establishing serious injury regarding spinal cords is quite difficult. Some insurance companies will say that disc herniation, slipped disc, ruptured disc, and other spinal cord injuries are actually “soft tissue” injuries; not considered “serious” by the state of New York. The insurance company will most likely have an expert that can refute your “serious” injury. They will dispute your claim and fight to not pay you fair compensation. If you are affected by a spinal cord injury and the insurance company disputes your claim of serious injury, you need an attorney with experience fighting against insurance companies refusing to pay workers compensation claims.
