Experienced Back Injuries Attorneys

Back injuries on the job, even in manual labor fields such as construction, are not inevitable. OSHA regulations spell out countless ways that contractors and laborers can prevent back injuries. Proper equipment, protective gear and safety procedures all help prevent back injuries in the workplace.

After a back injury occurs on the job, there are several areas of concern and investigation that must be addressed simultaneously:

  • Medical needs of the injured person
  • Determination of causes of the accident
  • Inventorying sources and types of compensation available to pay medical bills and replace lost wages

Upon investigation, specialists often determine that back injuries at work were caused by factors such as the following:

  • Workers were not provided with proper mechanical lifting equipment that could have avoided risk to the person responsible for moving heavy materials.
  • OSHA regulations about safe load-bearing for workers were violated.
  • Safety codes were not followed.
  • Impractical and unrealistic expectations for workers were a reality at a given workplace, setting the scene for trauma and disasters waiting to happen.
