Serious Attention for Your Serious Back Injury and Spinal Injury

The broad range of painful, sometimes-immobilizing back, back-related or spinal injuries that can be suffered during the course of employment includes:

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Cervical and lumbar area muscle strains
  • Degenerative disc diseases
  • Nerve impingements
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Sciatica
  • Whiplash or soft tissue injuries

Lower back injuries, temporary or permanent, can be the result of many types of work. Your job may call for repeated twisting and lifting motions; heavy lifting and overhead work can tax the lower back to the point of overuse. If you spend a great deal of time driving in the service of a public or private employer, or if you have suffered a motor vehicle accident at work you may also be susceptible to back injuries.

Never underestimate a spine or back injury you suffer while on the job. Many times, an employee will minimize the injury, thinking it’s nothing or not very serious, but then come to find the pain gets worse. The conspicuous lag time between your injury and when you report it can cause employers to think they can avoid responding with the benefits you deserve.

At the Northern California firm of Elder and Berg, our experienced disability lawyers fight hard for your rights and work on a contingency fee basis. In other words, we aren’t paid for our work until you get the benefits and compensation you deserve.
