Have You Suffered A
Lifting Injury Due To Work?
One of the most common work place injuries sustained is a lifting injury. It is generally the most prevalent in a variety of construction-related industries. On construction sites countless workers have to lift heavy objects. If not preformed correctly or without the proper safety equipment, the continuous stress of the motion can cause severe pain. If you have suffered an injury and are experiencing pain due to lifting at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation.
A lifting injury can have a significant affect on a person’s back, shoulders, arms, and knees. Heavy loads on construction sites may require special equipment or multiple people to carry. If these safety precautions are not met, and proper training is no provided, it can cause significant pain to a worker.
