Workplace Back Injuries

Did You Hurt Your Back in an Accident at Work?

A workplace back injury is an injury to the muscles, ligaments, bones or nerves in the back caused by an accident or incident at work. It can directly relate to an isolated incident, or be related to repeated strain, such as carrying heavy loads.

Examples of On-the-job Back Injuries

Some examples of common workplace back injuries include:

  • Slipped disc
  • Bulging/herniated disc
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Pinched nerve
  • Pulled muscle
  • Lower back strain

If you sustained a back injury at work, you may be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits for medical expenses, lost wages and, sometimes, rehabilitative therapy. You may also be able to file a third-party injury claim for pain and suffering, if someone other than your employer was responsible for the accident.

An attorney skilled in both workers’ compensation and personal injury law can help maximize your financial recovery. In most injury cases, you can talk to a lawyer free before making the decision to hire his or her legal services.
