Bowling Green Firm Pursues Compensation for Back and Neck Injuries

Kentucky lawyer represents employees who are hurt while on the job

Whether you work in a job that requires constant physical labor or got hurt while carrying boxes of files around your office, a back or neck injury could trigger lasting harm. Unlike some other conditions, damage to the spine, neck or head can be difficult to identify immediately. Taking the steps you need to protect yourself starts with hiring a seasoned workers’ compensation attorney. At Michael D. Lindsey, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, I put my more than a quarter-century of practice experience to work in cases involving fractures, slipped disks, nerve damage and other types of harm, I have the ability and resources to advocate for a result that fully covers medical costs, lost wages and other related expenses to the extent authorized by law.

Tough lawyer takes on cases involving spinal cord and disk damage

My background in workers’ compensation and personal injury law helps clients achieve strong results in all types of claims pertaining to back and neck conditions suffered at work, including:

  • Vertebral fractures — All broken bones require medical care, but the concentration of nerves in the spinal cord area makes vertebral fractures especially dangerous. In initial claims and appeals, I make sure that reviewers understand the full extent of the injury.
  • Disk injuries — Breakdowns in the disks that connect segments of the spine limit victims’ movement and cause severe pain. Symptoms can be particularly difficult for older individuals.
  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis — Paralysis doesn’t just result from an initial impact to the spinal cord but can also be triggered by swelling and inflammation that occurs afterward. Even when the risk of paralysis or other permanent damage seems slight, it is crucial to take precautions. My firm works tirelessly to see that injured workers have access to the funds they deserve during the recovery period.

In situations arising from one-time accidents and repetitive strain, I’ll give you the advice and advocacy you need to assert your rights to fair compensation, starting with a free consultation.

Skilled litigator advises clients suffering from the effects of head injuries

Even if the damage isn’t immediately apparent at the time, a blow to the head could cause problems with balance, memory and other functions for many years to come. In claims stemming from traumatic brain injuries, my firm assesses the severity of the harm and explains how similar cases are treated under Kentucky’s legal standards. When additional support is needed to strengthen your argument, I can identify the evidence that is likely to sway the decision-makers.
