Weitz & Luxenberg lawyers can help you receive compensation for your back injury
Back injuries are the second-most common reason for absence in the general workforce after the common cold. Weitz & Luxenberg, personal injury lawyers, wants to make sure you are not suffering lost productivity and wages due to someone else's negligence.
The two main types of back injuries.
The two most common back injuries are Spondololysis and Spondylolisthesis. The latter is a slipping of vertebra that occurs, in most cases, at the base of the spine. Spondylolysis, which is a defect or fracture of one or both wing-shaped parts of a vertebra, can result in vertebrae slipping backward, forward, or over a bone below. Cervical radiculopathy is the damage or disturbance of nerve function that results if one of the nerve roots near the cervical vertebrae is compressed. Damage to nerve roots in the cervical area can cause pain and the loss of sensation in various upper extremities, depending on where the damaged roots are located.
About 80 percent of adults are estimated to experience a back injury in their lifetime, and about 10 percent will suffer a re-injury, according to Premier Healthcare Alliance. In the United States, back disorders account for over 24 percent of all occupational injuries and illnesses involving days away from work (National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health).
If you or someone close to you has suffered a back injury from a motor vehicle accident, or any serious accident that was not your fault, you may be eligible for financial compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages, pain, and other expenses.
