We have a long track record of success helping Pennsylvania workers and their families through the entire process, from filing a claim and negotiating with employers and insurance companies, all the way to appealing denied benefits.

Bodily Injuries At Work

The term bodily injuries generally refers to any physical injury. These include a wide range of injuries, such as:

  • Broken bones
  • Organ damage
  • Chemical burns
  • Loss of limb function
  • Back injuries
  • An illness or disease
  • Temporary or permanent physical disability

The list of bodily injuries is much more extensive, and they can result from many work environments or work accidents.

Common Causes Of Work-Related Back Injuries

Back injuries can be immediate, such as from a fall on a construction site. They can also be gradual, from a job that requires a lot of heavy lifting. Other common actions that result in back injuries include:

  • Overextension when reaching, twisting, or bending
  • Repetitive lifting, twisting, or bending
  • Poor posture while sitting

An individual in any profession could suffer a serious back injury, from an industrial worker to a teacher. They could suffer a wide variety of painful injuries, including:

  • Strained back muscles
  • Damaged spinal cord
  • Damaged vertebrae
  • Slipped or herniated disks
  • Pinched nerves

They could also exasperate an existing back injury or condition.
