Much like a slip-and-fall injury, lifting and moving heavy items are often directly related to one’s specific employment, and many professions are more susceptible to these types of on-the-job injuries than others.
If you work in construction, logistics, landscaping, retail, nursing, warehouse or moving, you are highly likely to suffer from lifting injuries on the job at one time or another. Our firm is here to help ensure you receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled.
If you have suffered from a lifting injury, the pain and long-term effects of the injury are difficult to predict. It is possible for your injury to be sustained and your body may appear to be fine until a later incident triggers the effects of your accident once again. In these situations, it is important to be sure your case is well-documented and filed comprehensively so that if the effects do turn out to be long term, your benefits will be secured.
