An accident on the job can result in serious, life-altering consequences. Severe back and neck injuries may prevent you from ever returning to work, and even seemingly minor neck or back injuries can result in expensive medical bills and serious changes to your daily routines.
The attorneys of Bonifield & Rosenstengel have more than 35 years of experience representing people who have suffered injuries in Illinois and Missouri. From offices in Belleville, we provide skilled representation for personal injury and workers’ compensation claims.
Neck and back injuries may be caused by a specific traumatic lifting incident or by accumulated damage done over time. In either case, the ultimate injuries may include painful herniated disks and muscle strain, resulting in sharp pains and limited mobility. You may be required to undergo fusion surgery or disk replacement surgery, resulting in a lengthy recovery period.
Insurance companies often seek to settle back and neck injury claims quickly, despite the fact that the full consequences of your injury may not be known for quite a while. Protect yourself. Don’t accept a settlement before your treatment is complete, and you fully understand the effect your injury will have on your life and your ability to work.
Before you speak to the insurance companies or agree to a workers’ compensation settlement, speak with an experienced injury lawyer. Call
