Here For You

Here For You

A back injury can affect an individual for life. Chronic residual pain, non-functionality, and related issues can persist long after the back injury is believed to be healed.

If you have suffered a back injury at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Talk to a Southern Minnesota workers’ comp attorney from Kohlmeyer Hagen Law Office in Mankato. Contact a Mankato work-related back injury attorney online.

Work-Related Back Injuries

Our lawyers represent individuals who have suffered any of the following back injuries at work:

  • Herniated, slipped or ruptured disks
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Compression fractures
  • Overuse injuries
  • Nerve impingement
  • Strains and sprains
  • Lifting injuries

Maximize Financial Recovery

If your employer is responsible for your injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If a negligent third party is responsible for your injury (such as a negligent co-worker or machinery operator), you may be entitled to additional compensation through a third-party liability claim. Our law firm can discuss ways to maximize your financial recovery.

Seeking Medical Treatment for a Back Injury

Back injuries are some of the most common work-related injuries. If you have suffered a back injury at work, you should report your injury to your employer and seek quality medical care. In Minnesota, you can visit any doctor you wish, despite what your employer might say. Then, it is important to speak to a workers’ compensation attorney who can advise you about your specific legal options.
