Neck & Back Injuries

West Des Moines Neck and Back Injury Lawyers

Many of our clients perform manual labor on a daily basis. Performing heavy physical labor, lifting heavy objects, nursing home residents or hospital patients can cause strain to the back and neck. Neck and back injuries often lead to pain in other areas of the body, numbness in the hands and feet, or chronic pain. If you have sustained a neck or back injury at work from heavy lifting, consider Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, P.L.C. for skilled legal representation.

Helping Injured Workers from Many Industries

Our firm represents people from a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, trucking, shipping, and nursing home care. Commonly we see neck and back injuries affecting people who drive for a living such as taxi drivers and long-haul or destination truckers who have spent years sitting for extended periods of time, and may have been involved in rear-end or head-on collisions. Back injuries can be either traumatic or cumulative in nature. Our firm is committed to helping injured workers get the compensation they deserve for back injuries related to the following:

  • Ruptured/herniated disc
  • Chronic pain
  • Nerve damage
  • Low back injuries
  • Numbness or tingling in hands or feet related to back injury

Back injuries can cause residual harm to the lower extremities. When applicable, our firm will make sure you receive an independent medical examination to ensure you receive comprehensive care for all related health issues. These issues can also include depression that stems from a serious injury.

Keep in mind that in most situations an employer hires an employee "as is". This takes into consideration the health conditions you may already have. If your neck or back pain is part of a pre-existing condition, but is further aggravated by your work functions, you may be entitled to benefits. At Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, we are knowledgeable about the nuances of Workman's Compensation laws and the ways we can best advance our clients' outcomes.
