Common Back Injuries
Construction site work requires a fair amount of heavy lifting for most manual labor roles, and without proper training and safety equipment, this task can result in painful, debilitating back injuries. Unfortunately, many states force injured employees to rely solely on workers’ compensation claims to receive coverage for their medical expenses. However, labor laws in New York allow workers who suffer job-related back injuries to seek compensation from the negligent contractors, construction site employers, and property owners at fault for the unsafe working conditions.
If you have been injured as a result of inadequate safety training or equipment at your work site, a skilled attorney may be able to help you recover compensation in order to offset your medical expenses and other losses. At Hach & Rose, LLP, we are committed to protecting the rights of our clients through aggressive litigation, and we work diligently to help you resolve your case satisfactorily.

Types of Back Injuries
Heavy lifting is one of the most common reasons for a back injury at a construction site, and without back braces and other safety equipment, a construction worker can suffer the following injuries:
- Slipped discs
- Herniated discs
- Strained or pulled muscles
- Spinal cord injuries
There are almost always medical costs associated with back injuries, and combining these costs with the lost income caused by time away from work for recovery can quickly create a serious financial burden on the injured party.
At Hach & Rose, LLP, we have built our practice around helping individuals who have suffered injuries in the construction industry to recover fair compensation for their losses.
