Workplace Accidents and On-the-Job Back Injuries

Safety issues, defective equipment, or failure to follow the correct procedures can lead to accidents in the workplace and serious back injuries. These accidents may involve fall injuries that occur due to ladder or scaffolding accidents, on-the-job vehicle accidents, construction equipment accidents, tractor accidents, or falling objects. Workers may also suffer repetitive stress injuries due to regular stooping, crouching, or crawling, or they may suffer back injuries caused by attempts to lift too much weight.

Back injuries can result in chronic pain and restrictions to a person's range of motion and ability to perform physical tasks. Strains and sprains to muscles and ligaments in the lower back can cause swelling, soreness, and limited movement. Injuries to the upper back can lead to muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, pain in the ribs, and weakness in the shoulders, arms, or legs. Fractured vertebrae or herniated, slipped, or ruptured discs in the spine can cause the nerves in the spinal cord to become compressed, leading to debilitating pain and weakness of the muscles in the body. In the most serious spinal cord injuries, a person may suffer partial or total paralysis in some or all of their body.

Workers' compensation benefits will cover the costs of all medical treatment needed for a work-related back injury, including emergency medical treatment after an accident, surgeries to correct damage to the spine, ongoing physical therapy, and prescription medications. A worker may also receive disability benefits if their injury has caused them to be unable to return to work and continue earning the level of income they received before they were injured. In addition to these benefits, a worker may also be able to pursue third-party claims against anyone else who was responsible for their injury, such as the manufacturer of defective construction equipment or a driver who was at fault for a car accident.
