Back injuries are among the most common of workplace injuries. Injuries to the back frequently result in severe pain, preventing employees from returning to work. In addition, they often require extensive rehabilitation, resulting in lost wages and significant medical bills; neck fusions, disk replacements, pain management, physical therapy and other medical procedures that follow such injuries are extremely expensive.In a worst-case scenario, someone who suffers a serious back injury may be permanently handicapped and/or develop other permanent disabilities. Workers’ compensation can help these injured workers heal while protecting their interests.
If you or someone close to you injured his or her back on the job, get medical help and contact a lawyer immediately. We are here for you.
