Job-Related Slipped Disc, Neck Strain or Chronic Back Pain? Let Us Fight For Your Justice!

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the U.S. Department of Labor and the Bureau of Labor Statistics report that more than a million workers suffer back injuries each year and over 20 percent of workplace injuries involve back strain of some kind. Your back and/or neck may have been injured when you fell off a ladder, were lifting boxes in a warehouse, while operating heavy equipment on a construction site or in a business car accident or truck wreck. Whiplash, a broken collar bone, a slipped disc can result, as well as pinched nerves, which can cause the shooting pains of sciatica or numbness and tingling in fingers and toes. If you have work-related wrenched back or neck pain, let an understanding, experience, determined personal injury attorney fight for your restitution.

OSHA data also shows that 80 percent of back injuries cause lower back pain and that three out of four work-related back injuries occur while a worker is engaged in heavy lifting. Some on-the-job accidents can result in spinal cord injury, which can cause mobility problems, paralysis and even learning how to live life in wheelchair. We know how all-consuming any form of back or neck pain can be, particularly when it is aggravated by your work duties. Whether you spend all day lifting lumber on a Providence construction site, moving cargo in a Newport dockyard or sitting at a Fall River office computer all day, your back or neck pain may be excruciating. Any injuries involving the spine can cause lost wages, impaired earning capacity and the inability to do house chores and every day tasks.
