Our attorney, Gregg Nelson, travels across Minnesota to help injured workers get the workers' comp benefits they are entitled to.

Types Of Back Injury

Back injuries can range from relatively minor sprains and strains to permanent, debilitating trauma. The two most serious ways of injuring the back are the following:

  • Vertebrae, or bones in your spine, fracturing and slipping out of alignment
  • Nerve roots in your spine becoming compressed, which can cause pain, weakness or paralysis

Jobs that require frequent heavy lifting, twisting and bending tend to cause back problems over time. Of course, you can also badly injure your back in a workplace accident. However you were injured, without a healthy back many jobs become impossible. Your source of income can suddenly vanish.
