Workers' compensation and back pain

Many employees in California drive to work every day to earn a paycheck, but they may also be gaining something else: back pain. Whether a worker is stocking shelves at a grocery store, raising beams at a construction site or building cars in a factory, the possibility of injuring back muscles exists in many different jobs. Here are some of the basics about workers' compensation and back pain.

Back injuries are the most common work injury

When people think of workers' compensation, they usually think of slips, falls, overexertion and repetitive motion injuries. All are true, and back pain may be the consequence from any of them. After the common cold, back pain is one of the main reasons Americans miss work.

Back problems and workers' compensation

As many as one million workers report experiencing back pain annually, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Back pain is the second leading cause of people missing work. Around $11 billion is paid out to cover workers' compensation expenses for back pain alone. California workers might be interested to know that the tasks people perform at work are thought to be a significant factor in the development of back problems.
