If you suffer a serious neck injury, you may experience numbness in your arms and fingers or have difficulty moving your head. If you sustained this type of injury at work, your first step should be to seek medical attention.
After seeking the care of a qualified physician, your next step should be to seek the advice of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. A workers’ compensation lawyer will help you maximize any disability benefits that are available to you.

File A Workers’ Compensation Claim For All Neck Injuries
Unless a neck injury results in paralysis or another serious condition, many people think it is unnecessary to file a workers’ compensation claim. However, seemingly minor neck pain can quickly escalate into something more serious. Severe neck pain can limit a worker’s ability to perform job duties as effectively as before the accident or even prevent the worker from working altogether. No matter how insignificant an injury may initially seem, it is imperative that a worker file a claim.
If you must reduce your working hours to part time after a work-related neck injury, or you cannot return to any type of employment, you may qualify for temporary and permanent disability. A workers’ compensation attorney will explain how these benefits work and help you file the necessary paperwork.
