A back injury can be caused by so many different things. Most often, the muscles and discs up and down the back take the full brunt of any heavy lifting or accidental falls. As such, bulging or herniated discs on the neck and back are common and can lead to severe and life-altering consequences. It's important to contact a Connecticut lawyer to learn more about your options regarding workers' compensation benefits.
At the Law Offices of James F. Aspell, P.C., we have helped clients who were injured from a heavy lifting incident, repetitive stress, or simply turning or twisting the wrong way while carrying an item. Do not hesitate to contact our firm with any questions related to your workplace injury.
