Lifting

Work-Related Lifting Injuries Can Cause Lasting Damage

Injuries sustained as the result of heavy or repetitive lifting can leave employees hurt, unable to work, and even temporarily or permanently disabled.  Even when precautions are taken, employees tasked with lifting materials, equipment, or other items may suffer a variety of injuries, including:

  • Back Injuries, Sprains, and Strains
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Herniated Disks
  • Tendinitis
  • Torn Rotator Cuff
  • Knee and Hip Injuries

If a workplace injury requires medical attention or prevents you from performing your job duties, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA can help.  Proudly serving Ohio’s workers, our team is dedicated to assisting employees and families affected by on-the-job injuries.

Lifting Injuries Can Happen in Any Employment Environment

Nearly anyone can suffer a work-related lifting injury.  While lifting injuries are more common in certain professions, even repetitive lifting of small items in office or retail settings can result in severe impairment.  Age, fitness level, and pre-existing conditions can also contribute to injuries in professions with relatively low physical demands.

While anyone injured performing work-related lifting should contact an attorney, professions with a notable risk of lifting injuries include:

  • Construction, Carpentry, and Masonry
  • Custodial
  • Nursing
  • Manufacturing and Industrial
  • Landscaping and Outdoor Maintenance

Lifting injuries can cause significant medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, loss of wages, and myriad related expenses.  Our proven workers’ compensation attorneys can help you and your family identify and pursue the benefits you need to cover your losses.
