San Diego Back Injury Lawyer

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Serving Southern California

Back injuries that occur on the job are common, but this doesn’t mean they should be ignored. Chronic pain, disability, surgery, and limited range of motion are just some of the problems that can result from a back injury.

What Causes Back Injuries at Work?

Injuries to the back can occur in a number of different ways, including:

  • Operating heavy machinery
  • Lifting and carrying heavy items
  • Driving a motor vehicle
  • Squatting, kneeling, or digging
  • Stocking shelves with products

Finding yourself with a back injury from work can be an exhausting experience, but don’t lose hope. Our skilled San Diego workers’ compensation lawyer can work as your advocate with the insurance company. Our team can examine your case and provide the legal representation needed to reclaim damages.

Pursuing a Workers' Comp Back Injury Settlement

In California, employers with more than one full-time employee are required by law to obtain workers’ compensation insurance in order to provide their employees with treatment and care if they are injured on the job. When filing a workers compensation claim for a back injury, it is important to have a qualified attorney who can prove that your injury is the result of a specific work accident and will fight to recover all possible benefits.

What Different Types of Back Injuries Are There?

There are a variety of different types of back injuries that can be sustained at work. Just to name a few:

  • Muscle sprains or strains can cause pain and make it difficult to move normally; while normally noted as a "minor back injury," if not given proper rest and treatment, this type of injury can change quickly into something more serious
  • Disc injuries (such as a herniated disc) can cause severe pain and also lead to the need for extensive surgery to repair the damage done
  • Fractured or broken bones are some of the most serious types of back injuries because they are difficult to recover from and often prevent the worker from returning to work for a long period of time

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

Insurance companies often try to dispute or deny workers compensation for back injuries, using arguments such as a preexisting condition being the cause of an individual’s injury instead of the accident. This is why it is paramount that you have representation from an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. Let Leigh Law Firm’s back injuries lawyer in San Diego investigate your claim and aggressively pursue the benefits you are entitled to under workers' compensation insurance.
