Common Back Injuries Suffered the Workplace

Depending on your work environment, it is possible you may be at risk for a number of back injuries. The majority of these injuries are not caused by single events, but repeated stresses and trauma. A repetitive stress injury (RSI) can take place when the muscles of the back are constantly held in an awkward position.

Other workplace back injuries can be:

  • Herniated or slipped discs – Usually caused by excessive stress endured during improperly lifting an object
  • Muscle strains – Caused when a muscle in the back is stretched or torn and can cause severe pain and immobility
  • Fractured spine – People with the degenerative bone disease osteoporosis may suffer fractures during a slip and fall accident

These injuries require recovery time, and that is most likely the responsibility of your employer. By calling HDSL, you can receive a free consultation about the legal options you have available and how to proceed with your case. Do not wait to contact us.
