Neck, head and spine injuries are some of the most common workplace injuries, particularly in construction and labor-intensive industries. These injuries can stem from demanding tasks, such as heavy lifting and operating machinery. Shifting, falls and dropped objects can suddenly result in debilitating pain and injury.
Employees are not allowed by law to sue their employer for injuries sustained on the job, but they are entitled to workers' compensation benefits to cover medical bills and lost wages. The system can be complicated, however, and individuals easily be denied the full amount required based on a technicality.
