Getting Help for Injuries Stemming from Overexertion

Colorado work injury attorney R. Mack Babcock and associates helps workers injured from overexertion obtain treatment for their injuries and compensation for lost time

Overexertion is in fact the most common type of workplace injury, accounting for nearly one in four on-the-job injuries in 2009 according to Liberty Mutual's Injury Index. These injuries can occur without warning and can range from very minor sprains to major, debilitating injuries.

Overexertion can happen in many circumstances and is most common in the construction or any trade involving manual labor.

They usually occur without much warning – like a snapped back when lifting something heavy or maybe heat exhaustion from working too hard and too long outside on a hot day.

Whatever caused you to overexert yourself, if it occurs during the course of your employment, it's covered under Colorado workers' compensation

But in order to effectively navigate the complex workers' comp system, you need an experienced work injury attorney in Colorado to help ensure you receive the treatment and compensation you need for lost time from work.

And since workers' comp laws are so difficult to navigate, you may not receive near the benefits you need or are entitled to under the law. Remember, workers' compensation is a no-fault system where the employer agrees to pay the cost for work injuries in exchange for immunity from common law suits.

So if you've been injured by overexertion at your job, contact Colorado work injury attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm today for a free consultation.
