What to Do After a Back Injury

We understand that you might have many questions regarding what kind of claims you can make for a back injuries case including:

  • Am I eligible for workers’ compensation?
  • Do I have a personal injury claim?
  • Do I qualify for short-term or long-term disability benefits?
  • How do I make sure my private medical insurance pays for my treatment?
  • Can the negligent party’s insurance company can help cover my damages?

Our lawyers can answer all these questions for you and help you with each step of your personal injury or workers’ compensations claim.

Negotiating Insurance

If your back injuries resulted from an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, we will investigate all potentially responsible parties and determine what insurance coverage they carry that could help cover your damages. We will also negotiate with your own insurance carrier — and we will fight on your behalf if your insurer acts in bad faith to deny your legitimate claim.

Workers’ Compensation Representation

If your back injuries are the result of a accident at work or repetitive workplace activities, you have a workers’ compensation claim. It is important to note that if anyone other than your employer was responsible for the accident, you may have a personal injury claim as well.

We can represent you through every stage of your workers’ compensation claim and any associated personal injury claim, including assistance with applying for short- and long-term disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation referrals, and negotiation for payment of your evaluation, referrals and treatment while the claim is in process.

If your legitimate workers’ compensation claim is denied by, we can also represent you in the appellate process and at any required hearings. Please visit Attorney Bill Acton’s Web site for more information about workers’ compensation.
