How Lifting Accidents Can Injure You

When working on a construction site, it is very common for workers to need to lift heavy or unwieldy objects. Though many workers are able to do this without any further thought, as we at the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter know, many workers in Dallas actually sustain extreme injury when lifting objects. Whether a person lifting construction materials overextends him or herself by lifting too-heavy items, or a repetitive motion injury develops over a period of time, lifting injuries can be extremely harmful.

Because of the muscles people use to lift objects, there tend to be specific parts of the body that are more commonly injured in lifting accidents. If you’ve injured any part of your body due to a lifting accident that occurred while at work, however, you may be owed financial compensation to help you deal with the consequences.

Common Areas Injured by Lifting Accidents

There are several areas of the body that can suffer serious harm in the event of a lifting accident. For instance, the following tend to be injured in lifting accidents:

  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Legs
  • Arms

Injuries to any of these areas of the body can leave a person debilitated and unable to perform his or her regular duties. However, in this situation it’s important to know that an injured worker could actually be due compensation that can help him or her deal with medical costs and losing income from being unable to work.
