Neck Injury

Workers’ compensation neck injury claim—Minnesota workers’ compensation

One of the most common types of work injuries are neck injuries.  Neck injuries can result in a significant amount of time off of work.  These types of injuries can also result in treatment such as office visits, physical therapy, medications, injections, and even surgery.  For these reasons, workers’ compensation insurance companies will try to deny the injury or refuse to pay owed benefits.

The Law Office of Thomas D. Mottaz is dedicated to helping you get the benefits and medical treatment you deserve.  Our office has handled hundreds of neck injury claims.  You can call our office for free case evaluation at (855) 354-2667.

Most low neck injuries are caused while lifting, while others are caused by placing, carrying, holding, or lowering items or materials. Additionally, work-related neck injuries can also be caused by trauma, overexertion, falls, or strains.

Injured workers can sustain a variety of injuries to their neck, including:

  • herniated discs
  • strains/sprains
  • fractures
  • spinal cord injuries

It is important to seek the appropriate medical treatment and to choose the right doctor for you.  It is important to know what your rights are in selecting your own doctor.

Insurers may dispute that a neck injury even occurred.  It is important to report your injury immediately to your employer and seek medical treatment.

Following your work-related neck injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if you have a preexisting condition.  Under Minnesota Workers’ Compensation, as long as the injury aggravates, accelerates or worsens the preexisting condition and remains a substantial contributing cause to your disability, then you are allowed to collect workers’ compensation benefits.

If you are not receiving the workers’ compensation benefits you should be entitled too, it is important that you speak with a workers’ compensation injury lawyer to go over your case. Contact the Law Office of Thomas Mottaz to discuss your workers’ compensation case or call (855)354-2667 TODAY.

  • “Mr. Sisk took our case a few years ago not long after my wife was in a serious accident. Her employer’s insurance took insolvency and the employer was resolved to be no help at all. Despite the extremely out of the ordinary nature of our case, and regardless of impediments and hurdles, he has relentlessly fought for what was right on our behalf and been very successful doing so. Still today he continues to stand for us and what rightfully should be done. I simply can’t thank him enough. In troubled times this is the guy you want in your corner.”

  • “Jerry was very responsive to all my questions, concerns and showed compassion in this very difficult time of my life. He took time by email, phone and in person to help me understand the process, the time frame, and all the possibilities. Persevering in the duration of all the doctor visits, working with my employer, and my work related injury was not easy. Jerry handled all of it from our initial meeting to the final resolution with confidence, encouragement, and high integrity. I would strongly recommend Jerry to my family, my friends, and all of my acquaintances. I would without a doubt trust Jerry in the future, if a situation would occur that needed legal representation. I appreciate all he did in helping me get my life back on track and making a positive difference in my life.”

  • “Since injuring my back in 1978 I had multiple issues and problems with the employer and insurer. This led to many disputes over the years. Having been told to live with pain for the rest of my life, I reached a point when I could no longer continue working. At that time I hired David Kempston and he took on my case and worked out for me a settlement that I was very comfortable with. He was always attentive to my calls and responded quickly when I would whine about things which he would assure me it would all come together. He was right and I am so grateful for his hard work. He goes the extra mile for me as a client, and is the type of person you could leave your wallet and checkbook with and no it is safe. Again, I am extremely grateful for David Kempston’s work and highly recommend him to someone who has a work injury and needs the finest representation. If you want to hire somebody with excellent work ethics hire David Kempston.”
