Is A Work-Related Back Injury Wreaking Havoc On Your Life?
Perhaps you lifted something wrong on the job, or slipped and fell. Maybe you were involved in a work-related car accident. Regardless of the cause, you suffered an acute injury on the job and now you need medical attention.
Other types of work-related back injuries result not from a single event but from repeated activities you perform every day. Repetitive stress from lifting or other job functions can add up, leading to chronic pain.
A back injury, whether it’s caused by an acute event or repeated activities, can make your life miserable. You may end up not being able to perform your job duties. You may no longer be able to participate in family activities or sports you once loved.
Obtain The Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
As long as your back injury was caused or aggravated by your work activities, you may be entitled to California workers’ compensation.
Unfortunately, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company may deny your claim or attempt to minimize it. For example, a doctor working for the insurance carrier may list your back injury as a strain instead of a serious injury such as a ruptured disk. They may also claim your injury was not work-related. You do not have to fight the insurance company alone. Our Santa Ana workers’ compensation attorneys are here to help you obtain the benefits you need and deserve.
