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.
Regardless of the type of back injury you have sustained, if you were injured at work or as a result of another person or entity’s negligence, you do not have to face the associated physical, emotional, and financial burdens alone.
Our aggressive Waldorf back injury attorneys have a proven track record of success and decades of experience navigating personal injury law. We have represented clients throughout Southern Maryland in both settlement proceedings and jury trials. We strive for swift, favorable settlements whenever possible, and we are fully prepared to pursue the maximum compensation you deserve. If this means taking your case to trial, our team is ready.
We operate on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no upfront costs for you; instead, our attorneys are only paid if and when they recover compensation on your behalf, at which time, attorneys’ fees are handled via a pre-agreed upon percentage of your recovery.

“Mr. James Farmer is a very intelligent and skilled lawyer that knows what he is doing and will go out of his way to help. I am very thankful to have had him as my attorney!! I was facing some very serious charges and with Mr. Farmers unbelievable skills, I was found not guilty on all charges. I would highly recommend Mr. Farmer to anyone who needs legal help. I cannot stress enough that he will fight for you and do whatever he can to help you. Thanks, Mr. James Farmer for all that you have done for me!!

Kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable
“I couldn’t be happier with the service I received from this law firm. I felt comfortable from the minute I first walked through the door. I had less than two weeks before the expiration of my personal injury filing date and was overwhelmed. My first appointment was with Elizabeth who took my huge stack of papers with a smile and said, “Let me take care of this for you.” Although all of the staff that I encountered were wonderful, my main experience was with Mr. Farmer and Elizabeth who were both kind, sympathetic, reassuring and more importantly, very knowledgeable. My case was handled professionally and in a timely fashion. My case was recently concluded and I am very happy with the outcome and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to my friends and family in the future. Need a good law firm, no need to look further.”
