According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), some of the most common workplace injuries each year are slips and falls.
One of the most common outcomes of slips and falls is back and neck injuries.
Back and neck injuries can happen in a variety of other ways as well. They result from car accidents, sports injuries, overexertion, and more. No matter how you got your back or neck injury, though, one thing is certain, and that is it can be debilitating.
In fact, back and neck injuries may be considered a form of catastrophic injury. If you are suffering from crippling pain and medical bills, you may be able to get some financial relief by filing a catastrophic injury claim in San Diego.
Back and Neck Injuries in San Diego may include:
- Whiplash or connective tissue injury
- Compression fractures
- Herniated, slipped, or ruptured disk
Any of these injuries may require surgery, months or years of physical therapy, pain medications, or other treatments to correct. You may suffer from a loss of movement, and may no longer be able to perform the work or activities you did in the past.
The pain itself can also be crushing, and may deprive you of the daily activities you enjoyed. It is not uncommon for a back or neck injury to lead to psychological impairment as well in the form of depression. You may wonder whether you will ever be able to get back to doing what you love, and how you will take care of your family now that you can no longer perform as you used to.
