We represent construction workers, including
undocumented workers, throughout the New York City area.

Types of Back Injuries

Back injuries usually happen in one of three ways:

  • As a result of an accident such as fall
  • From lifting a heavy object
  • From repeated lifting activities over time

As long as your back injury was caused by your job-related activities, it is covered by workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers often try to avoid paying back injury claims. For example, they may claim your back injury:

  • Was not work-related
  • Is less severe than it is
  • Was due to a preexisting condition

Even if you had an existing back injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits as long as your condition was aggravated by your work-related activities.

A severe back injury can affect your ability to work and do the things you enjoy. Our lawyers are here to make sure you get the treatment you need and the full compensation you deserve.
