From traumatic brain injuries to back problems, workplace accidents cause many hardships. However, spinal cord injuries are often especially difficult and it is important for you to examine any resources that are available if your spinal cord was injured at work. In San Bernardino, and other cities around California, some people with injured spinal cords have obtained workers’ compensation benefits to help them restore some normalcy in their lives. At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, we are very familiar with the challenges that people face after a job site accident.
There are many types of on-the-job accidents that can result in a spinal cord injury, from an industrial accident and falling debris to a worker falling off of a roof or ladder. After an accident, you may lose your ability to continue working, which could lead to financial complications. After all, a loss of your income may leave you unable to buy food for your family, pay the mortgage and take care of other responsibilities. Sadly, spinal cord injuries often create troubles that follow people around for their entire lives.
Fortunately, you may be able to move forward from an accident that has completely upended your life. If you are eligible for workers’ compensation, the benefits could help you in a variety of ways. For example, you may be able to receive help with job training, monetary compensation and medical care.
