Minnesota Lawyers for the Injured Workers
Baggage Handler Injuries  

Minneapolis Baggage Handler Lawyer

Baggage handlers serve an essential role at our nation's airports, ensuring that bags and packages arrive at their destination with the passengers. Unfortunately, lifting heavy bags can lead to back injuries.

At Midwest Disability in Minneapolis, our lawyers take the health and well-being of airline employees very seriously. Our workers' compensation attorneys have more than 50 years of combined legal experience representing baggage handlers, pilots and other airline workers in Minneapolis, St. Paul and throughout Minnesota who have been injured on the job.

Types Of Back Injuries

Baggage handlers may experience two different types of back injuries:

  • Sudden onset injury from a single lifting event
  • Cumulative damage from repeated lifting over time

Many people develop some degree of spinal degeneration as they get older. However, when a person's job involves lifting heavy bags and packages, that degeneration can be accelerated and aggravated.

Even if your back pain is due to a pre-existing condition, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits as long as your condition was worsened by your on-the-job activities. If you have chronic back pain that prevents you from showing up to work five days per week, you may be eligible for long-term disability benefits. Our attorneys are skilled at helping you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to, no matter how hard your employer and insurance carriers work to deny your claims.
