Fort Collins Back and Neck Injury Lawyers

Fort Collins Back and Neck Injury Lawyers

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Serving Larimer County and Weld County

Injuries to the neck and back are common in workplaces across the country including here in Northern Colorado. In fact, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports that back injuries are second only to hand injuries as the most common type of workplace injury. At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we understand how a back or neck injury can affect your life and your ability to provide for your family. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys are equipped to help you get the benefits you need so that you can get back to work as quickly as possible.

Types of Back Injuries

There are many different kinds of back and neck injuries, each with its own set of challenges and required treatment. Some of the most common back injuries include:

  • Slipped discs;
  • Fractured vertebrae;
  • Herniated or bulging discs;
  • Pinched nerves;
  • Muscle and soft tissue injuries; and
  • Damage to the spinal cord.

Some back injuries can happen suddenly as the result of a fall, lifting something too heavy, a vehicle accident, or an explosion. Many neck and back injuries, however, develop over time and are caused by repetitive motion, repeated lifting or carrying of heavy objects, or tasks that require twisting or bending. For those with desk jobs, poor posture could lead to back and neck problems. Whether your back injury was caused by a single traumatic incident or repeated strain, you may be eligible to collect benefits under Colorado’s workers’ compensation system.

Longmont Workers’ Comp Attorneys for Back and Neck Pain

Back and neck injuries are especially problematic because the pain associated with them can last for many months or even years after the initial injury. In some cases, the pain never goes away entirely. The exact source of the pain can also be difficult to determine in many cases, especially when there was no identifiable accident to blame.

Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for employers and insurance companies to claim that your back or neck pain is not related to your job. They may try to blame a pre-existing injury or the normal aging process in an attempt to avoid paying your claim. If your employer or their insurance carrier is refuting your back or neck injury claim, you need an experienced attorney on your side.

The skilled workers’ compensation attorneys at Hoggatt Law Office, P.C. will work hard to show that your injuries and pain are related to a workplace injury so that you can receive the benefits you deserve. We will help you seek compensation for past and future medical expenses and lost wages, as well as temporary or permanent disability benefits if necessary. Our team will also help you get the best possible medical care to help you recover from your injuries.
