An injury to the neck or lower back can severely inhibit one's ability to work. As many know, the pain can be unbearable. Those whose jobs require a great deal of physical labor — construction workers, electricians, installation service providers, carpenters, roofers, assembly line workers and the like — may be unable to continue in their field.
Office workers, too, may find their careers compromised. Damage to the spine can make sitting at a desk, and typing at a computer, prohibitively painful.
Obtaining Financial Relief
Individuals who have been hurt in a workplace accident, or who have sustained an injury as a result of repetitive stress, can seek compensation for medical care, lost wages and other concerns through workers' compensation claims.
Yet, filing a claim, and obtaining financial relief, is no easy task. In Connecticut, companies and employers alike are quick to challenge workers. They will try to prove that one's injury did not occur in the workplace, and demonstrate that one's suffering is not as severe as supposed.
