Workplace Back Injuries

Connecticut Workplace Back Injuries Lawyer

Perhaps the most common and often the most complex type of workers' compensation claims involve a workplace back injury. From repetitive lifting or twisting, to a fall at work, the result can be painful back strain and herniated or bulging disc injuries.

In less catastrophic workplace back injury cases, you may experience impaired movement and chronic weakness or pain in your spine, arms and legs. More severe back injuries like those suffered in construction-related accidents can result in catastrophic paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia.
