Back injuries are common for workers performing manual labor, and they are surprisingly common for other workers as well. In some cases, workers with back injuries can get good medical treatment and obtain all of their needed compensation without legal help. In other cases, however, the process is much more difficult. Many injured workers receive doctors’ reports that indicate the injuries are far less severe than they really are, state they are from a pre-existing condition, or return the employee to his or her job prematurely.
Although the North Carolina workers’ compensation system ordinarily requires that an injured worker suffer an accident or deviation from the normal work routine before a workers’ compensation claim may be accepted, back injuries are treated differently. In order to support a finding of compensability for back injuries, the employee need only have suffered a specific traumatic incident. So, while an injury to an arm occurring during the normal course of work duties may not be covered by workers compensation, compensation may be allowed for an injury to the back during the same work duties.

But through the course of representation, we have seen clients receive total payouts ranging from five-figure to seven-figure recoveries, including medical care compensation, disability benefits and third-party liability claims.
