Columbia Workplace Back Injury Attorney

Back injuries can be the result of a one-time traumatic incident, such as a car crash or motorcycle collision, or long-term, overuse or “repetitive strain” injuries, typically caused by manual labor. No matter the cause, or whether you were injured on or off the job, we are confident in our ability to help you get the compensation you deserve. Columbia workplace back injury lawyer Marc Brown can help you file a personal injury claim with the negligent party who caused your injury, or seek compensation through a workers’ comp claim if your injury occurred at work.

Work-Caused Repetitive Strain Back Injuries / Overuse Injuries

If your back injury occurred because of your line of work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including wage replacement and medical expenses. The most common types of work-related back injuries are overuse injuries, including:

  • Torn muscle
  • Torn tendon or ligament
  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon or ligament strains
  • Bulging disc
  • Slipped disc
  • Herniated disc
  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Chronic back pain left over from a previous injury (pain receptors may continue signaling pain even if the original soft tissue damage has healed).

However, slip and falls, impact injuries, hit-by injuries, and other traumatic accidents can also lead to a work-caused back injury. No matter the type of back injury, you deserve to be compensated through South Carolina’s workers’ compensation program, which is no-fault insurance available to virtually every South Carolina worker through their employer.

Traumatic Back Injuries

Traumatic back injuries are caused by car crashes, bicycle collisions, pedestrian collisions, slip and falls, the use of defective or dangerous consumer products, work accidents, and other incidents that involve a hit, blow, or sudden and violent force to the back. The most serious type of back injury involves a fractured vertebrae, which can cause permanent paralysis if the spinal cord is severed. However, usually if a vertebrae is fractured, the spinal cord is either kept intact or the injury to it is only temporary/incomplete. Regardless, a fractured vertebrae is an incredibly painful and debilitating injury in its own right, and may require surgery to repair. Other traumatic back injuries include whiplash, crushed disc, herniated disc, or torn muscle or tendon.

Call a Columbia Back Injury Lawyer Today For Assistance in Filing a Claim

Damages in a Columbia back injury claim may include medical expenses and future care, lost wages and lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of joy of life, and more. If you were injured at work, as opposed to a traffic collision or premises slip and fall, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault for the accident. In either case, your only true chance of success in being fairly compensated is by working with an experienced attorney. Columbia back injury attorney Marc Brown will gather evidence, establish fault, compile your damages, file claims, and file a lawsuit in civil court if necessary to ensure the best possible chance of success in your case.
