Workplace Back Injury Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale
Helping Injured Workers Find Relief
Back injuries are both unfortunately common and extremely incapacitating. Workers may suffer these injuries when doing physical labor or due to an uncomfortable office setup. They may happen in one accident or build up over time—but either way, serious back injuries require treatment, or they may cause permanent symptoms or disability.
At Rosenberg & Rosenberg, P.A., we provide compassionate, effective legal advocacy for workers who were injured while on the job. If you are suffering a back injury you sustained at the workplace, we want to help you file for workers' compensation to cover medical bills and financial loss. Especially if you are currently seeking treatment, it’s understandable to want assistance with the complex claims process. Our attorneys are happy to oblige.

Types of Back Injuries that May Warrant a Worker’s Compensation Claim
Even back injuries that at first seem mild can seriously incapacitate a worker. Therefore, virtually any kind of back injury may make you eligible to file for workers’ compensation. Many employees file claims for injuries like:
- Wrenched muscles surrounding the spine
- Sprains and strains
- Spinal fractures
- Paraplegia, quadriplegia, and other forms of paralysis
In a workers’ compensation case, it doesn’t matter who was at fault. Your right to recover a settlement is linked to your employment rather than proof of your innocence.
When You Can File a Lawsuit for Your Back Injury
If an injury is the direct result of another party’s negligence and has caused you financial loss or other quantifiable damages, you might be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Depending on the nature of your accident and the severity of your injury, you may be able to recover additional damages through a personal injury case that would not be available to you through workers’ comp. However, to file a lawsuit, you must also be able to prove the negligence was linked to a third party—i.e., someone who was not your employer.
In a personal injury lawsuit, you can request compensation for:
- Hospital bills
- Medical treatments
- Time off from work
- Lost income
- Lost savings
- Delayed bills or payments
- Visits with medical specialists
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If you have sustained a back injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault, allow us to advocate for you in your pursuit of justice and fair compensation.
