Columbus Back And Neck Injury Attorney

Separating The Natural Aging Process From Accident Injuries

As we age, our bodies wear down. It's part of the natural aging process, and it's inevitable. However, although an MRI might show that anyone over the age 20 has degenerative disk disease, most middle-aged people do not complain about back pain unless they have suffered a back injury.

Regardless, when individuals suffer back or neck injuries in on-the-job accidents, their employers and the Bureau of Workers' Compensation are quick to argue that back injuries are the result of degenerative disk disease and are part of the natural aging process.

A Columbus lawyer who has experience handling back and neck injuries can separate what part of the injury was a normal part of the aging process and what part was caused by the work environment. The Law Office of Christopher A. Flint, LLC, represents injured workers throughout central Ohio and can help ensure you receive the compensation you need.

Back Injuries Caused By Work Accidents

Although degenerative disk disease may be present in all adults, there are other factors that can prove a back injury is work related. With nearly 20 years of experience, attorney Chris Flint knows that there are numerous factors to consider when handling a back or neck injury case. He looks at factors such as the individual's age, the amount and severity of degenerative disk disease, and pre-existing lower back or neck problems.

Armed with medical information and an in-depth knowledge of the law, attorney Chris Flint helps injured employees receive compensation for injuries such as:

  • Strains and sprains
  • Disk injuries
  • Spinal injuries
  • Radiating pain or numbness in the arms and legs
