Helping Workers With Back And Shoulder Injuries

The pain and lack of mobility stemming from a shoulder or back injury can be devastating. Simple tasks become difficult and painful, working even more so.

With 30 years of experience assisting injured workers, the Law Office of Ronald M. Stein, Attorney at Law, can guide you through the process of recovering from your back injury. We'll help you ensure you get the right medical care and fight for your right to compensation from your employer. We work hard, so you don't have to.

A Tough Road To Recovery

One of the most common injuries California workers sustain on the job are those to the back or shoulders. All too often, workers in construction, agriculture and even retail experience:

  • Slipped discs
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Herniated discs
  • Spinal fractures
  • Ligament tears
  • Wear and tear from constant motion

These injuries might occur in any number of ways, including lifting heavy objects or falling from a ladder. Recovery is often slow, as these injuries generally require physical therapy before a person is able to return to work.

We'll Help You Get Back On Your Feet

A back or shoulder injury can have severe, long-lasting effects including limited range of motion, pain and even paralysis. They have a profound effect on your ability to work, especially in jobs involving heavy labor. Many people with back or shoulder injuries need to have surgery, adding high medical costs to time missed from work.

A successful workers' compensation claim can help you cover these costs, so you can focus on healing. Even if you had existing back issues, you still may be entitled to benefits if your work conditions accelerate or aggravate a back injury.
