Back Injuries on the Job

Back Injuries on the Job

According to the University of Minnesota, injuries to the back are one of the most prevalent and costly work-related musculoskeletal disorders in the United States. Low-back pain adversely affects 1,000,000 workers in the United States every year and is responsible for more lost work days than any other musculoskeletal disorder, they report.

On average, the university's experts said, people with back injuries miss an average of six working days. However, nearly 20 percent of persons with back injuries missed more than 31 days of work. One quarter of all compensation indemnity claims involve back injuries that are the cause of considerable pain and suffering and produce a negative impact on the injured person's quality of life.
