Your options when suffering a neck injury at work

It is possible to attain a neck injury in a number of ways, but even a seemingly minor injury to the neck can be quite serious, so it is important to never ignore it. Certain types of neck injuries, if left untreated, can lead to the body becoming paralyzed.

If you have a job that requires physical activity such as lifting objects or being exposed to certain risks, such as working on a construction site or in a mine, you are more likely to be involved in an accident that can injure your neck. You may have been struck by an object on a construction site or fallen due to hazardous conditions, through no fault of your own.

If you receive a neck injury in an accident that occurred in your workplace, you may have to pay expensive medical bills as a result, and even lose wages due to being unable to work. This can result in a lower standard of living, and your neck injury may have permanent consequences. The law protects workers that have been negatively effected by their working environment by them with providing workers' compensation.

How the law protects you

Workers' compensation is monetary payment that can cover the costs of medical bills and lost wages as a result of an accident that took place in the workplace. In order to receive workers' compensation, you should fill in a form to make an application. Workers' compensation can also provide financial support for family members who are grieving the loss of a loved one due to a neck injury or other serious accident at work.
