Lifting Injuries at Work
Shoulder Injuries | Back and Neck Trauma | Leg and Knee Injuries
What’s the most common type of workplace injury? It’s no surprise that more workers are hurt on the job while lifting something than in any other activity. There’s almost no type of industry or manufacturing that doesn’t require someone to do some lifting. But you might work in an office and sustain an injury from lifting or moving boxes of files.
You may not be lifting a heavy object, but suffer debilitating injury from lifting the same items over and over, for hours at a time. If you’ve suffered an injury at work caused in any way by lifting something, you want an experienced lawyer to help you get the benefit you deserve.
