Attorney Snell understands form personal experience that a back injury can be the most painful type of injury that you could suffer from. He also knows that it can be one of the most debilitating types of conditions that a healthy person can suffer from. Workplace back injuries happen to all types of employees throughout South Carolina. The Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, represents people who have injured their back at work.

Causes of Back Injuries

Some back injuries are caused by automobile accidents, construction site accidents, or falls. Other cases may be caused by heavy lifting or a repetitive strain. Regardless of the cause, if you hurt your back at work you may qualify for workers' compensation benefits.

Work-related back injuries may consist of the following among others:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Herniated, bulging, slipped, or ruptured discs
  • Chronic lumbar pain
  • Chronic cervical pain
  • Pain in your groin and hips
  • Pain in your legs and feet
  • Pain in your arms and hands

Your Case Explained by Our Columbia, SC Injury Lawyer

Possible treatments may include surgery, physical therapy, pain therapy, medication and injections. This may be expensive medical care that your employer or their insurance company may not always want to provide. Because a back injury may be very expensive to provide benefits for many times employers and their insurance company choose to ignore or deny a legally valid claim. It is important that you have skilled representation on your side in order to pursue your goals and desires for your future.

Depending on the severity of your injury (which can't always be known the day, week, or month of your accident) you may qualify for:

  • Weekly payments
  • Medical treatments
  • Payment for permanent impairment
  • Permanent disability benefits
