Workers Compensation Back Injuries

Back injuries are among the most common workplace injuries. More than one million American workers are adversely affected by back pain. Back pain is responsible for more lost work than any other musculoskeletal disorder, with nearly half a million workers missing at least one day of work due to back pain, and about 100,000 back pain sufferers miss 31 or more days of work a year.

Back injuries affect workers in all economic segments, including:

  • Retail
  • Medicine or nursing
  • Manufacturing
  • Transportation

Worse, back injuries can be hard to properly document for compensation with workers’ compensation claims.

Under Oklahoma law, there are sample benefits prescribed for most types of injuries, such as a lost finger, broken arm, or amputation injury, but back injury compensation is based on a doctor’s estimate of your percentage disability to the body as a whole. This is based on descriptions given in the American Medical Association’s Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment. This will be based on the degree of your impairment in many types of activities, such as lifting, bending, sitting, walking, stooping, and other activities.

Back injury is highly susceptible to re-injury, so it’s important that if you return to work you are given appropriate limitations.

The workers’ compensation lawyers of Self & Associates have experience helping injured workers in Oklahoma City to get the compensation they deserve. For help with your workers’ compensation claim, please contact Self & Associates today for an appointment.
