Rhode Island Back Injuries Lawyer

Workers Comp Settlement for Herniated Disc

Injuries to the back, neck, and spine are some of the most common work-related injuries and can be devastating. These injuries typically occur as a result of lifting, twisting, and/or a traumatic fall. When accidents happen, injured workers need the full cooperation of employers and the insurance company in order to treat their condition and pay for recovery and rehabilitation. Unfortunately, they instead can face denial, delay, and red tape, making it difficult to obtain the treatment they need and to provide for themselves and their families.

If you have sustained a back injury at work, the law firm of Audette, Cordeiro & Violette can help. Backed by 85-plus years of combined experience, our attorneys are skilled at helping injured workers gain access to the benefits they deserve. We advocate for essential medical treatment, compensation for lost wages and, if needed, a financial settlement if you are unable to return to work.

Different Types of Back Injuries

Your back is what keeps your whole body stable and upright, and even the simplest of movements require a strong, sound back. People are often amazed at how even a relatively minor back injury can disrupt their lives. Back injuries can be extremely painful, and an accident can leave you with chronic pain, long-term medical needs, and even permanent disability.

There are many different ways in which you might injure your back, including:

  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Herniated discs
  • Compression fractures
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Neck injuries
  • Whiplash

Whether you’ve injured your upper or lower back, back injuries should always be taken seriously. Back injuries can result from a variety of situations, and often occur in the workplace. In addition to poor lifting technique and sudden falls, improper training, unsafe working conditions, and unexpected hazards can all contribute to the circumstances that result in a back injury.
