What was the cause of my back injury in the workplace?

Having a physical job can mean that you often suffer from pains and strains without being able to pinpoint the cause. If you are suffering from severe back pain, it's likely that you will want to seek medical attention and gain the appropriate treatment. You may even need to take time off work in order to recover. When doing so, it's important that you notify your employer and file for workers' compensation so that you can gain back damages.

However, in order to file for workers' compensation, you'll need to be able to pinpoint the activity you were engaging in that led to your back injury. The following are some of the most common causes of back injuries in the workplace.

Improper lifting technique

If you engage in heavy lifting at work, you may have lifted something with an improper technique. This could have eventually led to a back injury and accompanying pain.

Tight deadlines

If your employer was rushing you, you may have been engaging in physical work without thinking about safety. This could have led to a back-related injury.

Repetitive motion

If you work with machines or engage in repetitive physical tasks, you may repeat certain motions hundreds of times per day. This can lead to strains in muscles, including in the back, which can result in significant pain.

If you are suffering from back pain due to your working environment, it is important that you notify your employer as soon as possible. This may mean that you will be able to file a workers' compensation claim and that you'll be able to gain financial compensation for the damages caused.
