Workplace back injuries can be severe, but some employees may not notice their overall severity right away.
Strain injuries are the most common way that an individual’s back can be damaged while at work. These injuries usually target the lower back and could be caused by repetitive lifting motions, or slip and fall accidents.
A back injury can initially improve, and then become a major problem yet again. Employees need to alert their employers as soon as they suffer a workplace back injury, in order to cover all their bases when applying for workers’ compensation benefits.
If you are suffering from the complications of a back injury that you received at work, please contact the back injury attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. by calling 215-238-1130 today.

Last week, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited a Houston, Pennsylvania maintenance company, C & C Marine Maintenance Co., for several workplace safety violations. OSHA officials have fined the company $45,900.
Investigators determined the company committed 13 serious safety violations at their facility in Wellsburg. ”The lack of employee protections against workplace hazards is unacceptable. It is vital that the company address all of the identified hazards to ensure that employees have a safe and healthy work environment,” said the director of the OSHA Charleston office.
Serious violations are distinguished by the possibility that somebody could become seriously injured or killed as a result of the violation.
