Neck injuries can impinge nerves, causing pain in remote parts of the body. If you have a neck injury, you may need extensive treatment including physical therapy and surgery, and you may be sidelined from work for a significant period of time.
How do you prove a neck injury is work related? Are you worried about getting treatment or paying the bills? If you believe that your neck injury occurred at work, contact an attorney right away.
I am workers' compensation attorney Michael J. Orlando. For more than 11 years, I have been helping people recover the benefits they need and deserve after a workplace injury or illness. Before becoming a lawyer, I worked in insurance for more than 15 years.

Insurance companies often attempt to hide the severity of a condition by accepting claims for less serious injuries. They do this to make the worker think he or she is fully covered and does not need to pursue legal action.
