Back Injuries

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.

At Farmer & Klopfer, we represent clients who have suffered serious back injuries that prevent them from returning to their normal lives. Our Waldorf back injury lawyers offer a compassionate, client-focused approach, coupled with aggressive, unrelenting advocacy in settlement or trial. This has helped our firm secure tens of millions of dollars on behalf of injured individuals and their families throughout the Southern Maryland region.

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.

  • Thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning

    “From the initial consultation, I knew I needed James Farmer and his team on my side. He was thorough and attentive to my case from the beginning, prior to even hiring his firm. Once I officially hired his firm, he and his colleague Mr. Melvin Allen moved to strategically place me in the best position possible. They supported me throughout the process by making sure I understood what was happening and I felt extremely grateful to have them on my side! Long story short, my case was successfully completed with a favorable outcome! An outcome I couldn’t even imagine was possible but Mr. Allen’s expertise, strategy, and courtroom presence made it all possible! My wife and I are forever grateful and will always look to this firm on any future needs and you should, too!”
