Atlanta work injury lawyers at Gerber & Holder answer common questions for injured workers
ATLANTA, Jul. 02, 2020 — Gerber & Holder Workers’ Compensation Attorneys, a leading Georgia law firm that serves injured workers in Atlanta, Athens, Columbus and throughout the state, has published a comprehensive guide for injured workers entitled “Work-Related Back & Neck Injury FAQ.”
Back injuries are the most common reason for lost days at work in the United States, apart from the common cold. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, back injuries account for nearly 1 in 5 (20 percent) of all workplace injuries and illnesses, affecting more than 1 million American workers.
“It’s important for workers starting a new job or returning to work after many months away to be careful about how they lift and treat their backs,” says Ben Gerber, cofounder of Gerber & Holder Law. “Workplace back injuries are some of the most common occupational hazards, and workers must safeguard themselves against injury or re-injury.”
In this new guide, Ben and his skilled legal team address some of the most frequently asked questions surrounding on-the-job back and neck injuries, including:
- What happens if I hurt my back at work?
- What causes back injuries at work?
- How much money can I get for a back injury at work?
- Can I be fired for having a bad back?
- Should I go to work if I have back pain?
- Can I sue if I hurt my back or neck at work?
- Who’s liable for my job-related injury?
