A back injury is an extremely serious matter that can impact victims for months or even years after the initial incident. Numbness in the extremities, constant pain, trouble with grip strength and other issues can impact how a patient functions for the rest of their life. In their worst form, back and neck injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis.
When these injuries happen in an accident because of another person’s negligence, victims are able to seek compensation from the responsible parties. These can be extremely complex cases, and having a qualified Delaware back injury attorney can help to ensure that your interests are protected.

If I Injured My Back At Work Can I Sue My Employer?
No, generally speaking, back injury lawsuits cannot be filed against an employer because of workers’ compensation. However, in many cases, a third party contributed to the accident and the lawsuit is then filed against this party. For example, if a construction worker slips and falls on electrical cords that should have been secured by a contractor, they can pursue legal action against the contractor. Or, if a delivery driver sustains a back injury in a rear-end auto accident, they can file a lawsuit against the negligent driver.
These lawsuits can be filed at the same time as a workers’ compensation claim.
Delaware Attorneys Handling Workers’ Compensation Claims And Appeals
The legal team at Schuster Jechetti LLP can help with both your initial workers’ compensation claim or appeal. We are deeply familiar with both workers’ compensation law and the common mistakes that are made on claim forms that could result in a denial.
Let us speak with the insurance companies on your behalf so that you can focus entirely on getting the medical care that you need. After all, without proper care, back injuries can lead to a deterioration of the spine, causing further permanent damage down the road including painful arthritis. Even with proper care, back injuries can be debilitating. We know this and we work tirelessly to ensure you are getting the maximum payout possible from workers’ compensation.
Why Should I File A Lawsuit And File For Workers’ Comp?
Even if workers’ compensation insurance pays out the maximum amount it still won’t cover all of the losses that a patient will encounter over their lifetime. The compensation that can come from a settlement or successful verdict can make up for the additional losses.
