Back Injury Lawyers in Chicago
Experienced Legal Counsel You Can Depend On
Back injuries, especially common in construction and manual labor jobs, are 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

Protecting the Legal Rights of Injured Workers in Illinois
If you have arrived at this website because you severely injured your back while lifting goods in a warehouse, our workplace injury lawyers welcome your inquiry. During a free initial consultation, we may explore key questions such as:
Could a forklift, elevator, or another machine or device have lifted the load that you were carrying or moving at the time of your back injury? Was this type of support for workers missing in the workplace? Or, did a supervisor’s direction, poor equipment maintenance, performance quotas, or other factors deter you from protecting yourself?
Discuss this and other important issues with one of our workplace injury attorneys. Anesi Ozmon advises and guides clients through the complex process of filing workers’ compensation claims, to include appeals in the event that benefits are denied. At the same time, we evaluate every on-the-job injury case for third-party liability.
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 prevented 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.
