Back & Neck Injuries
The most common workplace injury is also one of the most disabling and expensive to treat — back strain.
Common categories are:
- Whiplash and soft tissue damage
- Bulging or herniated disks
- Lumbar muscle strain
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Degenerative disk disease
Even medically necessary interventions such as spinal fusion can render the patient unemployable in his or her line of work. The total cost of serious back injury, going into the future, is complex. You do not want to file a claim that leaves you holding the bag for expensive care. If you have been injured, consult an experienced back and neck injury attorney at Tillman & Associates of Atlanta.
Georgia Back And Neck Injuries Lawyer
Every day, workers feel that first serious twinge, signaling that something is seriously wrong. Sometimes workers take a day or two off in hopes that the pain will go away. When it doesn’t, some employers claim the injury happened at home, hoping to avoid payment. Employers have many approaches they resort to in an effort to dodge legitimate claims. One is that no one saw you get injured. Another is that you didn’t file a claim in time.
Many back injuries occur in a single moment, like lifting something that is just too heavy. Other injuries develop across time, like doing something as seemingly safe as typing or working the assembly line. Employers sometimes try to dodge responsibility for these repetitive stress injuries because the moment of injury cannot be pinpointed.

Our goal is to show that you suffered your injury as a result of your occupation and that you are therefore entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
