Watch Your Back
Workplace injuries are more common than anyone would like. Each year, thousands of North Carolina workers are hurt on the job. In addition to the physical pain that one is likely to experience, there may also be adverse effects on an injured worker’s financial security, family, and the productivity and profitability of an employer.
To help combat these problems the state has mandated that nearly all employers carry workers’ compensation insurance to offset the medical bills and lost wages that are likely to result. Back injuries are among the most devastating workplace injuries because they can make sitting, standing, and moving all excruciatingly painful.
If you have sustained an on the job back injury, we can help you to file a workers’ compensation claim so that you and your family will receive the benefits that you are due. Contact the Morehead City workers’ compensation lawyers of the Law Office of Sam Scudder today at 919-851-3311.
Causes of Back Injuries
Back injuries are difficult to treat while continuing to work because virtually every physical action is apt to aggravate the site of the injury. As a consequence, it is important to rest, and you need to receive some compensation to make that a viable option. Continuing to work when you have sustained a workplace back injury can cause your condition to deteriorate and may do irreparable harm to your body. Some common causes of back injuries in the workplace include:
- Automobile accidents
- Lifting injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
