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.
