Kansas City Back Injury Attorneys
A back injury can leave you unable work and in constant pain. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than one million workers suffer back injuries every year, and back injuries account for one of five workplace injuries. Furthermore, many back injury cases are due to automobile accidents, slip and fall accidents, or other industrial or construction site accidents. Sustaining a back injury, no matter how serious, can also be a life-altering experience resulting in expensive medical care as well as months, even years, of physical therapy.

Types of Back and Spinal Injuries
Our attorneys have worked with thousands of individuals throughout Kansas City on their back injury claims. Likewise, we have represented individuals with a wide array of back and/or spinal injuries. Some of the most common back injuries have included:
- Strains, sprains, and spasms
- Bulging, herniated, and ruptured vertebral discs
- Slipped discs
- Vertebral fractures
- Spinal cord injury
- Nerve damage
In a workers’ compensation case, these injuries are often due to lifting heavy items and workplace accidents. Regardless of whether the injury was incurred at work or was due to the negligence for another, ongoing treatment for spinal and back injuries generally include medications, massages, physical therapy, epidural injections, chiropractic care, pain management, and, in severe cases, surgery.
Furthermore, due to the excessive pain and limited movement associated with a back injury, many victims cannot return to work for a long period of time, resulting in thousands of lost wages. For severe injuries, the victim may not be able to return to work again and could suffer from lifelong complications.
