If you suffer a workplace back injury or neck injury, it is critical that you are diagnosed immediately and accurately following your workplace accident. Proper diagnoses can generally be secured with an MRI, CT scan or myelogram, and will help ensure that you receive the needed treatment for a successful medical outcome. Our workers compensation lawyers work closely with clients throughout the medical process to make sure they are paired with specialists who will properly diagnose and effectively treat their back and neck conditions.
Emery Reddy frequently handles neck and back injuries including bulging discs, herniated discs, pinched nerves, stenosis, myelopathy, arachnoiditis, failed back or post-laminectomy syndrome, cervical and lumbar disc fractures, and cases involving workers who have undergone or need laminectomies, disectomies, or fusions. We also understand that pain management is indispensible to the treatment program for a back or neck injury. Workers may have difficulty getting approval for physical therapy, medication, injections, facet blocks, or even spinal cord stimulators that can provide needed relief from pain. The Washington L&I lawyers at Emery Reddy can review your medical records and work with your doctor to support your claim for a neck or back injury.
