Obtaining Compensation for Lifting Injuries

Colorado workers' compensation attorneys help ensure you receive the required treatment and compensation to attend to workplace lifting injuries

A common cause of workplace injuries involves lifting objects that are too heavy and/or lifting them improperly. These injuries can cause what's known as musculoskeletal disorders, which are injuries and disorders of the muscles, nerves, tendons, joints, cartilage or spine.

In all likelihood, if you've sustained a lifting injury, you're in quite a lot of pain. And this pain can in fact radiate to other parts of your body. Say you injure your lower back lifting a heavy box – pain from that could migrate to your legs or maybe even your neck or arms.

Much of the time, injuries from lifting, pulling or moving improperly do not become apparent right away.

But a few days later, you start experiencing excruciating pain that potentially immobilizes you

In situations like this though, workers' compensation insurers may try and claim the conditions are not the result of a workplace accident. If they're successful in doing this, you may be stuck with the pain and the bill for dealing with it.

That's where an experienced Denver workers' compensation attorney can be a wonderful life saver, helping you prove it was a workplace accident and helping you obtain the necessary treatment and compensation for lost wages.

So if you're suffering back, neck, shoulder or some other pain from a lifting injury at work, contact Denver workers' compensation attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm today for a free consultation.

"In September 2016 I contacted the Babcock Law Firm to seek help with my workers compensation (injury) case... I was then quickly scheduled the next day to meet with Stephanie Tucker (associate attorney) to go over all my case details. From day one, I really felt I was dealt with the upmost understanding and compassion. It didn't take me very long to know that I was making the right choice. Now, three and a half months later, and with the firm's awesome help, the opposing insurance company has finally settled with us. The pay-out amount was exactly what we had hoped for! A very special thank you goes out to everyone at The Babcock Law Firm! Sincerely, Garrett T. (Denver, CO.) "

"Your staff is amazing. Jane made the intake and outtake processes thorough and reliable--always supportive. Aiden consistently provided a professional and efficient connection--again always supportive. Stephanie: So honest and patient--she is unbelievable and such an incredible guide--especially for someone like me. I didn't know how or where to begin, or what to expect. I am so grateful for the support and most of all, for the means that I need to go forward with treatment. I am continuing with my primary care doctor, and a specialist, able to submit claims through my regular insurance. Thanks you so much for being there! Barbara"
