At the Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin, our San Jose workers' comp lawyers advocate for you on your behalf through the workers' compensation process. From initial applications to appeals, you can trust that we will adeptly handle your case, moving you toward the best possible result for your claim.
Employees who have suffered neck injuries should seek medical treatment even if the claim has not been approved. A neck injury can upturn your professional and personal life. Don't be afraid to tell your employer either, as it is illegal for a company to react negatively or to punish an employee for a work-related injury.
If you were injured on the job, or as a result of the cumulative stress of your job, you have the right to seek compensation to cover the related expenses.
If you were injured in an accident at work, the neck injury claim is often much more straightforward. Ideally, we will be able to collect witness statements and a detailed description of the accident to provide you with a solid claim. Cumulative neck injury claims are a bit more complex, as it requires a specially trained eye to be able to track the progression of your injury over time.
For cumulative injuries, doctors or medical care professionals may dismiss your concerns, saying that it's a minor inflammation to be waited out. Our San Jose workers' comp attorneys always tell our clients to trust their instincts. If you know something is wrong, seek a second opinion. Let us intercede for you with your employer to make sure your treatment costs are covered.
When you're hurting, the last thing you want to do is negotiate with insurance brokers. We do that for you so you can focus on healing.
