Workplace accidents in Pennsylvania can be very serious. And some of the most severe injuries workers can sustain on the job involve damage to the back or neck. When these accidents occur, injured workers often cannot do their job for weeks or months or sometimes ever again.

Types Of Back And Neck Injuries
There are many different types of back and neck injuries that people sustain on the job. Some of these injuries occur slowly over time – whether it’s due to regularly lifting heavy objects or performing the same repetitive task at work. Other back or neck injuries often occur due to a single, violent event. These injuries include:
Spinal cord injury
Herniated disc in back
Bruised or torn back muscles
Strained or sprained back muscles
Herniated disc in neck
Depending on the location and severity of the back or neck injury, the affected person could become paralyzed and lose the use of parts of their body below the injury temporarily or permanently. That’s why it’s critical to seek immediate medical attention for a back or neck injury – then talk to an attorney at our law firm.
