Just about every move we make with our bodies involves the back and neck. Injuring those areas can have serious and long-lasting consequences for our personal and work lives. If you suffer an injury in the workplace, you should be able to count on workers compensation to help with expenses. However, the team at JML Law is ready to step in when you need a Corona back & neck injury attorney. We will work to investigate your injury so we can secure the compensation you deserve.
What are the most common neck and back injuries in the workplace?
During a recent year of data available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), we know that there was a total of 16,060 neck injuries and 200,250 back injuries that led to employees having to miss days of work.
Our backs and necks both create an amazing system that allows our bodies to function. They are the command and control station. Nearly every move we make involves the neck or back, which is why it can be catastrophic when either of them sustains an injury.
Our necks are the starting point of our spinal column and spinal cord. They are also home to tendons, muscles, and tissues that, when damaged, can lead to debilitating pain and disability. A damaged neck can even lead to paralysis.
Our backs are incredibly complex and are made up of bones, vertebrae, muscles, and tendons. Moving our legs, arms, and core all involve our back in some way. Back injuries can lead to anything from minor pain and discomfort to paralysis.
Our Corona back & neck injury lawyers commonly see the following injuries:
- Muscle or ligament strains
- Bulging or ruptured discs
- Injuries to the spinal cord
- Herniated discs
