Charleston Lifting Injury Lawyer
Lifting injuries caused by workplace accidents or repetitive strenuous movements on the job are more common than most people think. What starts out as a mere discomfort can grow to be a serious back injury. It may require long and costly rehabilitation treatments, including surgery.
At Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., we will seek to pursue your workers’ compensation benefits to the maximum of your entitlement for your workplace injury or job-related accident.
South Carolina Heavy Labor Accident Lawyer
While heavy labor accidents such as those happening on construction sites account for many lifting injuries, sometimes even lifting lightweight objects can lead to a lifting accident. Many factory and even retail jobs include moving heavy objects, which can lead to lifting accidents that result in neck, shoulder, joint and back injuries.
Lifting injuries can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to pinpoint as a cause of more serious symptoms and conditions. An experienced labor accident lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to obtain all workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled as a result of an on-the-job accident or work-related injury.
Sometimes, negligence on the part of a third party (generally not your employer or a fellow employee) resulted in your lifting accident. In this case, you may also be able to pursue a third-party personal injury claim in addition to workers’ compensation benefits.
