What injuries can happen to the neck and back in the workplace?
Our necks and backs are both one extensive and effective system. However, they work together, and an injury to one often affects the other. The back and neck are also the control centers of our bodies, so when something goes wrong, our mobility is severely impacted.
The neck is the starting point for both our spinal column and spinal cord. An injury to the neck can severely damage the spinal cord and even cause paralysis. Also present in the neck are various tendons, muscles, and tissues that can be damaged.
The back is made up of bones, vertebrae, muscles, and tendons. Almost every move we make involves our backs. Moving our core, arms, and legs would not be possible without the complex system that composes our backs. We can injure our backs in a variety of ways. Some of the most common types of injuries our Garden Grove back & neck injury lawyers see include the following:
- herniated discs
- muscle or ligament strains
- bulging or ruptured discs
- injuries to the spinal cord
Some of the most common ways these injuries occur include slips, trips, and falls, as well as heavy equipment malfunction in the workplace. Back and neck injuries have the ability to partially or completely disable a worker, making it impossible for them to earn an income or enjoy their daily life activities.
- The cost of first-year care for a spinal cord injury can be more than $1 million.
Is there compensation available for these injuries?
If you or a loved one has suffered from a back or neck injury in the workplace, you should be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, if you are struggling to get the coverage you need, you can count on the knowledgeable and experienced team at JML Law to help.
