Proven Workers’ Compensation For Back Injuries
Whether it occurs as the result of a fall from a ladder or over time due to poor conditions on the job, a back injury at work is a painful and stressful scenario. You know you need medical treatment, but you may not know where to seek it. You also wonder how you will pay hospital bills, especially if your injury leaves you without an income.
At Cohen, Snyder, Eisenberg & Katzenberg, P.A., our attorneys are there to get you the physical help you need while assuaging all concerns about the process to come. We represent injured workers in Baltimore and throughout Maryland.
Steps To Take After An Accident
If you are in Maryland, you are entitled to see any physician you want. Unless your injury in an emergency, we recommend that you visit your regular doctor. Your employer’s doctors may underestimate the amount of damage done. Regardless of where you go or how your injuries happened, you should seek medical treatment immediately after the accident or at the first sign of symptoms.
This is important for three reasons:
- You are more likely to recover faster.
- You give your employer and its insurance company little room to argue.
- You can maximize potential benefits covering hospital bills and future needs.
The longer you wait to pursue medical assistance, the more difficult it is to prove your injury is related to work duties, especially in cases of repetitive use injuries.
