Extensive Surgery and Rehabilitation
There’s little that’s free in American medicine, and that’s never more true than when you’ve suffered a head injury or a neck and back injury. In fact, a 1989 study by the National Institute for Neurological Disorder and Stroke found that the lifetime treatment costs for a patient who suffered a single traumatic brain injury were more than $4 million.
Where does this money go? The North Carolina workers’ compensation lawyers at White and Stradley have seen what victims of head, neck, back and spine injuries have to go through. These include:
- Surgical Procedures: Surgery on the head, spine or back is never simple, and it’s often required when there are fractures or hematomas involved. These procedures tend to be extraordinarily expensive.
- Prescription medication: There is obviously a substantial amount of pain associated with these injuries. Pain-killing medication helps, but it can also be quite costly.
- Rehabilitation: In the aftermath of an injury to your head, neck, back or spine, it can be difficult to perform basic tasks. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are not luxuries in these cases, they’re necessities.
North Carolina’s workers’ compensation law provides medical benefits for those hurt on the job, but they won’t necessarily cover all of your costs. You need certainty and you need as many benefits as you are entitled to.
That’s where our workers’ compensation lawyers come in. We understand the complexities of the law, know how to navigate the system and understand how to help you in this difficult time.
