Serious back injuries can have long-term effects on an individual’s ability to work and interact with family and friends on a regular basis. Treatment is often on-going and special care must be taken in order to prevent further injury.
If your serious back injury is a result of lifting, bending, twisting or falling while at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Sustained and repetitive activity is often the culprit of these back injuries, including herniated disks. Workers’ compensation can help you cover costs associated with medical bills and lost wages.
