Traumatic Injuries

Work injuries are most often caused by a single traumatic event. Whether that event involves a lifting incident, a fall, machinery malfunction or other cause, a work injury can have devastating effects.

At Robichaud & Alcántara, our attorneys have developed a reputation for professionalism, experience and thorough preparation. We understand that recovery can be lengthy and require months of doctor visits and extensive physical therapy. Let us take care of the insurance and legal issues, so you can focus on your recovery and return to work.

Traumatic injuries can cover a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Back injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Disc herniation
  • Crush injuries
  • Heavy machinery injuries

These injuries can lead to permanent life-altering conditions. Make sure to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible. Whether or not your claim is denied initially by the insurance company, we can help.

Falls from Height

Common traumatic work injuries include a fall from height, an injury caused by tools or heavy lifting injuries. These injuries often involve many body parts. It is important that you notify your employer of all accidents and injuries, even if at the time they may seem minor. We will examine the factors surrounding your accident to determine what benefits are available to you.
