Boston, MA Back Injury Attorneys
One of the most common injuries that can develop on a construction site is suffering or damage sustained to the back. While back injuries frequently develop even in stationary office jobs, the risk of back injury on a construction site is incalculably higher and more exacerbated due to the constantly active and dangerous nature of the job. Back injuries can be hugely debilitating and limit your mobility to an extent that you may have trouble performing simple daily tasks—not to mention the possibility of being unable to continue performing your job on a construction site. Unfortunately, these accidents can result in financial losses from mounting medical bills along with possible loss of income.

Financial concerns atop developing health issues can be a lot to cope with without assistance. Understand that you do not have to face the challenges of a back injury alone. If you have suffered a back injury from your job at a construction site, our Boston back injury lawyers want to help lessen the blow.
Common Causes of Back Injuries
A construction site is teeming with potential hazards and workers perform a lot of hard labor that can stress the back. Performing these tasks repeatedly can easily induce tension on the body, resulting in serious back injuries. The frequent causes of a back injury include:
- Falls from faulty equipment
- Falls into holes or trenches that are not properly marked with a warning sign
- Accidents from heavy machinery
- Accidents involving power tools
- Repetitive stress-inducing motion
- Overexertion of muscles
The extent of back injuries can be far-reaching and result in paralysis, herniated disks, nerve damage, torn ligaments, spinal fractures, muscle and tendon injuries, or crushed vertebrae. Sometimes, the injury occurs through no fault of the worker but due to improper safety protocols or unsafe equipment. For this reason, Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, takes back injuries very seriously and may be able to help fight for your financial damages.
