Back injuries are among the most common conditions our Raleigh workers’ compensation lawyers see. A workplace back injury can afflict employees in just about any line of work, whether you're in a sedentary office position or a labor-intensive field that involves heavy lifting.
The trouble with back injuries is that they linger. It's not like a broken bone that causes a great deal of pain and inconvenience at first, but can be treated and often eliminated as a concern. Back injuries are resistant to treatment and you can find yourself dealing with their effects for years, even after receiving top-notch medical care.
The lingering effects of back injuries are not always mild. Often, they cause debilitating pain and make it difficult for you to go about your day-to-day life. This includes working and earning a living.
Workers' compensation can help if you have suffered a debilitating back injury on the job, but there's often a lot of skepticism about this type of injury from employers and insurance companies. That's why it's so important for you to have our skilled, experienced workers’ comp lawyers on your side. We are here to stand up for your rights and protect your best interests, helping ensure you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
