Back Injury Lawyers in Waldorf
Zealous Representation for Clients throughout Southern Maryland
Back injuries are a relatively common, but no less debilitating, type of catastrophic injury. In fact, back injuries are one of the most common reasons for workplace absences. According to certain studies, approximately 25% of all workplace injuries that result in missed work are occupational back injuries.
Anyone can suffer a back injury—employees in the healthcare, construction, and labor industries often sustain back injuries while lifting or moving heavy items at work. An individual may slip and fall in a grocery store or retail shop, hurting his or her back as a result. A person involved in a car accident may suffer a herniated disc and/or other debilitating back injuries.

The Short- & Long-Term Effects of a Back Injury
Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, as well as other factors, such as the age and overall health of the victim, back injuries can have serious and lasting effects.
Some of the common short- and long-term effects of back injuries include:
- Pain (immediate and chronic)
- Reduced/loss of function
- Limited range of motion
- Reduced or lost strength
- Reduced ability/inability to work
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, etc.)
The effects of a back injury depend largely on the type of injury the victim has sustained. Moderate back injuries include sprains and strains caused by overextension/overreaching, as well as bruises/contusions caused by falls. More severe back injuries include things like slipped/herniated discs, fractures, and injuries affecting the spinal cord.
