What should I do if I injured my back while at work?

Back injuries are one of the most common types of work-related injuries. They can occur over a period of time due to repetitive lifting or involve a single, traumatic incident. The most important thing you can do to protect yourself is to notify your employer as soon as you are aware of your injury.

Common back injuries include back sprains, fractured vertebrae and herniated or bulging discs. If you sustain an injury to your back, after notifying your employer you should seek immediate medical attention. It is important to explain to your doctor how the incident occurred, where it occurred and the type of pain you are experiencing.

Your physician will ultimately dictate what type of medical treatment is required to treat your injuries. Oftentimes, we see treating physicians begin a slow course of physical therapy to strengthen the muscles and tissues surrounding your spine. If continued therapy and pain management are not enough to treat your injuries, surgical intervention may be offered as a last resort.

Our role is to assist you with obtaining the benefits you are entitled due to a work-related injury. This includes compensation for your time off work, payment of necessary medical expenses and a disability award, depending upon the nature of your injury. If you have any questions or concerns regarding how the insurance company is handling your claim, please feel free to contact our office for a free legal consultation.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.
    - Tyler D.

  6. "In-depth knowledge of the law"

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
