Explaining Back and Neck Injuries to Chicago Employees

A back injury is any trauma to the back that impedes or affects how a person normally operates. The injury may occur anywhere on the back and related areas (upper back, lower back, shoulders). The impact may be immediate or developed over time (physical repetitive stress injury). Some common back problems include torn, herniated or bulging disks, muscle spasms and fractures of the vertebrae.

A neck injury can involve strain, fractures and misalignment. Like a back injury, it is a painful injury that can impact your ability to work and alter how you live. Neck injuries may slow your reaction time and prevent you from enjoying activities you once loved. Some common neck injuries include, but are not limited to herniated discs, whiplash, muscle strain (spine-related) and strain of ligaments in the neck.

Laws that Protect Workers who Experience Back and Neck Injuries

In Illinois, the Workers’ Compensation Act  has provisions for employees that are injured or develop diseases related to employment tasks and conditions. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) governs federal employee claims. There is a limited amount of time to make a claim. Mr. Peters is ready to help you today.
