When was the last time you read about the most common back injuries? Did you hear about it in a news article or saw it in a medical paper? Most likely you did not hear or read about it at all and this is because these kinds of injuries are very rarely reported. The reason for this is that the person that is making the claims may be in the hospital and unable to talk, or they could have recently moved. In either case this means that their condition is not known to many people and the claims adjuster will try to keep the claim secret to protect themselves.
The second most common Back Injury Claim is a slipped disc which can occur in the lower back or on any side of the body. Millions of Americans get slipped discs every year and there is plenty of help available if you are unfortunate enough to suffer one. The other most common back injury is a herniated disc. This is when the inner gel like material inside the disc bulges and starts to put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Millions of people suffer from this every year but it is relatively easy to treat and should not put you out for too long.
So as you can see there are two most common back injuries and they are both fairly common. However, as with any injury claims you should always ensure that you read the small print before signing up with the company. If you are unfortunate enough to suffer an injury that leaves you unable to work for a few months then it would be worth talking to a lawyer who specializes in these type of injuries. This way you would be able to get full compensation for your pain and suffering.
