Workers’ Compensation for Lifting Accidents
Lifting accidents can result in chronic back pain that makes it impossible to do your job. At Midwest Disability Work Comp, P.A., our Minneapolis lifting accident lawyers can help you receive the benefits you deserve from workers’ compensation. We represent injured workers in Minneapolis, St. Paul and throughout Minnesota.
Types Of Back Injuries From Lifting Things At Work
Lifting accidents can result in two types of injuries:
- Sudden onset injuries
- Injuries that occur over time from a series of events
When you seek medical treatment for a lifting injury, it is important for your doctor to understand that your injury occurred on the job. Otherwise, your employer or the workers’ compensation insurance carrier may deny your claim, saying that your injury is not work-related. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even if you aggravated a preexisting injury in a lifting accident at work. Our attorneys are committed to making certain you get all of the benefits you are entitled to for medical costs, lost wages and disability. If you are unable to do your old job due to chronic back pain, you may also qualify for vocational rehabilitation benefits.
