Common Lifting Injuries
Many workers are required to engage in heavy lifting as part of their employment. Sometimes this lifting can cause an immediate injury to the worker. Injury to the back, shoulders, arms and knees can occur. Hernias are another common lifting injury. Some of the more common examples of a lifting injury are:
- A nurse, nurse’s aide or orderly is injured lifting a heavy patient
- A warehouse or package delivery worker is injured lifting a heavy carton
- A propane delivery man is injured carrying a heavy tank
- A moving company worker is injured carrying or lifting furniture
- A repairman, installer or inspector is injured lifting furniture that is in the way
These are just some examples, but unfortunately there are many other ways employees are injured while lifting things on the job.
Worker’s Compensation Benefits for a Lifting Injury
Lifting injuries can have serious consequences for workers, both in the short term and in the long term. A worker may require medical treatment, medication, physical therapy and time to recover free of physical strain. Worker’s compensation is designed to protect an injured worker by providing immediate medical attention and follow-up care, and by providing compensation for lost wages (if applicable) and for any permanent injury.

We Take Lifting Injury Cases Seriously
Unfortunately, employees who seek workers’ compensation benefits after suffering lifting injuries often find that their complaints are ignored or underestimated. Some employers expect workers to ‘tough it out’ and ‘get back to work.’ Some won’t even submit the claim to workers’ compensation. Some feel since there is no ‘accident’ there is no workers’ compensation claim. Don’t believe it. If you were injured while lifting on the job, you have rights. Our experienced lawyers can help you obtain the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled following a lifting injury. We will fight to ensure you receive proper medical care and fair compensation for your injury and lost wages. For more about workers’ compensation benefits see our workers’ compensation page.
