Manufacturing Accident Claims for People who Sustain Back Injuries
Workers in the manufacturing industry are often asked to lift heavy objects as part of their day-to-day work duties. Despite this knowledge, manufacturing workers’ employers need to make sure they are providing adequate training and safety equipment to their employees so as to mitigate the likelihood of an accident as much possible. Though all workers who are injured at work will be eligible to get immediate relief from workers’ compensation, some workers may be able to pursue compensation from their employers or third-party contractors.
Back Injuries Commonly Sustained from Lifting at Work
Injuries to the back are serious and can potentially prevent a worker from performing their job in the future. Accident victims should keep that possibility in mind when considering whether to file a claim after sustaining any of the following back injuries:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Slipped or ruptured discs
- Herniated discs
- Dislocated discs
- Muscle strains and tears
Whatever the particulars of your injury are, our legal team can evaluate your claim and then help you pursue a decisive line of legal action against the responsible party.
