What Are the Causes of Back Injuries?

Back injuries can result from a wide range of different accidents, including car crashes, slip and fall accidents, offshore lifting accident and 18 wheeler accident. In many cases, these types of accidents occur as a result of another party's reckless actions or disregard for the safety of others, such as an inattentive driver, a supervisor who is more concerned about making money than protecting his employees or a property owner's failure to inspect their property for potential hazards. In regards to offshore workplace injuries, back pain can result from failure to maintain a safe place to work and failure to provide the proper equipment to perform a job resulting in serious back injuries including herniated discs. Back injuries can remain dormant for months if not years after an accident and slowly worsen over time. If left untreated, certain spinal cord injuries can cause permanent paralysis and loss of sensation.

In general, back injuries are the result of the following four causes:

  • Sudden force
  • Repetitive motions
  • Continuous stress
  • Poor posture relative to the lift
