If you have suffered a back injury at work that limits your ability to perform your work-related functions, you probably have a number of worries and concerns. Are you eligible for workers’ compensation? Will you ever be able to return to work? How will you afford the necessary medical care?
Causes of Back Injuries
Some of the most common work-related back injuries include:
- Lifting injuries
- Herniated disks
- Ruptured disks
- Broken and fractured bones
Repetitive Stress Back Injuries
While many workers’ compensation injuries occur as a result of one clearly defined accident or event, back injuries can also result from repetitive stress. Even an action that causes only a small amount of stress on your back can result in an injury if the action is repeated often over a long period of time.
Although repetitive stress injuries cause just as much pain and can be just as debilitating as other back injuries, they are more subtle and difficult to diagnose. This makes it more difficult to obtain workers' compensation benefits for repetitive stress injuries.
