Back injuries are among the most common of workplace injuries. They are difficult to treat, requiring long treatments, medication and sometimes surgery. Back injuries are also difficult to diagnose because in some cases symptoms tend to come and go and in other cases they do not even surface for long after a work related injury or on the job accident.
Hazardous working conditions, faulty equipment and other circumstances may have caused or contributed to your injury. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you determine compensability as a Workers’ Compensation Claim, or fault and negligence on the part of an employer, co-worker or a liable third party.
At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we have successfully represented clients seeking compensation for work-related back injuries under both workers’ compensation and general liability.

Some of the most common causes of back pain can include herniated disks, fractured vertebrae and sprains and strains. These injuries can cause severe back pain, significantly limit your mobility and reduce your quality of life.
Back injuries are among the most common workers’ compensation claims. The South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act provides that the injured employee must carry the legal burden of proving that the back injury was caused by a compensable on the job injury or work related accident.
