Back & Neck Injuries Attorney in St. Louis, Missouri
Many workers suffer back or neck injury strains while at work and don’t take the incident seriously. They return home and nurse the pain for a period of time before they recognize it as a serious problem. This can cause the employer to deny the claim on the premise that it cannot be proven that the injury was suffered on the job. The employer can also assert that the claim was not witnessed on the job by others, or that it was not reported in the required amount of time.

Bulging or herniated disks
Degenerative disk disease
Lumbar muscle strain
Whiplash and soft tissue damage
Workplace back injury
These injuries can arise following a wide range of work and workplace accidents. This can include repetitive motion, overhead lifts and heavy work, and on-the-job physical stress. Such incidents are not always dramatic one-time accidents where it would be easy to identify the cause of the injury. Because of this, employers can claim that your injury is not job-related and cannot be filed against workers’ compensation.
