The majority of people working in the US still perform some form of manual labor. Whether it is as strenuous as lifting bricks in a construction site, or as seemingly minor as carrying a chair from one desk to another, you could be placing undue strain upon your back. All forms of lifting and carrying, walking quickly and even moving a heavy item from one room to another can cause spine injuries. In most cases, this harm is silent, and the damage gradually builds up until you start to suffer from pain in your back. Additional weakness, including pains in the legs or problems with the neck and shoulders, can make movement painful and may affect your ability to do your job.
Spinal Problems Are Common For US Workers
Unsurprisingly, a large number of the injuries suffered by workers on the job relate to spinal problems, ranging from discomfort after a hard day to debilitating injuries. In a number of cases, these injuries can be the beginning of long-term disabilities and even paralysis. For workers without these severe problems, you may still find yourself having to stop work while you recover from your back problem. This might include re-learning how to do simple lifting and moving, as well as extensive medical appointments. For most US workers, being unable to work and facing mounting medical bills can be a terrifying prospect. Getting compensation for your injury might not seem like a priority, but it could be the best way to cover your bills while you are not able to work.
Get A Lawyer On The Case
When you are forced to take time off work with spinal injuries, you need a legal team that can help you claim compensation. Like most US workers, you probably won’t have enough saved up to cover the physiotherapy you need, plus cover your co-pay and any other bills that occur because you can’t work. Juggling all of these costs, as well as making a legal claim for compensation, can become overwhelming, and this is why you need a specialist team who can make legal appeals on your behalf.
