Springfield Back Injury Lawyer
Missouri Work Injury Attorney
Back injuries occur from lifting, bending, stooping, and slipping. Back injuries are among the most painful types of debilitating injuries but are often the most difficult to prove. The pain and immobility can prevent the sufferer from completing the most menial job tasks, but proving that the injury occurred specifically because of a workplace accident or repetitive motion on the job is often refuted by employers. Because of the nature of the injury and therapy options that relieve the pain but may not repair the damage, back and neck injuries often result in claims of permanent and total disability.
If you are suffering from back pain that prevents you from doing your job in central or southwestern Missouri, you have the right to file for Missouri workers' compensation benefits. Your employer already has attorneys helping them. It only stands to reason that you should have an attorney helping you. In the event your pain or injury developed as a result of repetitive stress, rather than a specific accident, you still have legal recourse for benefits.
