At the law office of Menard & Menard, our personal injury attorneys understand the costs and struggles facing families and individuals recovering from a truck accident.

Back injury results from damage, wear, or trauma to the bones, muscles, or other tissues of the back. Common back injury include sprains and strains, herniated disks, and fractured vertebrae. The lumbar is often the site of back pain. The area is susceptible because of its flexibility and the amount of body weight it regularly bears. It is estimated that low-back pain may affect as much as 50 to 70 percent of the general population in the United States. Damage may be prevented by attention to posture, flexibility, muscle strength and fitness.

An employer may not fire, demote, harass or otherwise “retaliate” against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in a discrimination proceeding, or otherwise opposing discrimination. The same laws that prohibit discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, and disability, as well as wage differences between men and women performing substantially equal work, also prohibit employer retaliation against individuals who oppose unlawful discrimination or participate in an employment discrimination proceeding.
