The human spinal column is nothing less than a remarkably structured and highly complex moving machine. Yet like any moving machine, it can break down.
Indeed, you don't have to look any further than statistics from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, which found that in 2013 alone, there were 170,450 reported cases of back injuries among the nation's workforce.
What makes these back injuries so devastating for workers is that they are often not only painful and debilitating, but also difficult to treat and even permanent.
At the Eley Law Firm, we understand how frustrating it can be for workers sidelined by back injuries, especially if they know very little about this bodily trauma and their options regarding financial assistance.
It's because of this that we published a new white paper entitled The Truth Hurts: A Closer Look at Back Injuries in the Workforce. Here, we discuss such important topics as:
- Causes of work-related back injuries
- Types of work-related back injuries
- Workers' compensation benefits and back injuries
We sincerely hope you will read our white paper, as we believe it can provide the answers you need and the understanding you deserve.
