Lifting Injuries

Construction work takes a toll on the human body. The everyday lifting of heavy objects increases the risk of worker injury and permanent damage. Heavy lifting can result in injuries to a worker’s body. The construction company must create an environment that limits the risk of their workers sustaining a lifting injury.

Construction Site Lifting Injuries

Proper lifting requires the use of the entire body. Safety devices such as back supports, gloves, proper boots, and proper clothing can help reduce the risk of receiving a heavy lifting injury. The construction company must ensure that all workers on the site are equipped with the proper safety equipment. Failure to do so may cause the construction company to be liable for lifting injuries suffered by the company’s employees. Heavy lifting can cause the following injuries:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Nerve Damage
  • Back or Neck Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Hands and Feet Injuries
  • Shoulder Injuries
  • Hip Injuries
  • Broken Bones

Client Reviews
Troy's firm was recommended to me by a close friend. Once I hired Troy and his Firm, I knew I was in great hands with his extensive trial experience and attention to detail. He was always working diligently behind the scenes and answered my questions promptly. All of his staff was updated on my case, so anytime I called they knew who I was and the status of my case. I would recommend Troy to anyone in a difficult situation. Kerry
Mr. Burleson handled my case and I got a great result. He took time to explain my option and go over my case and answer all my questions. I recommend Troy Burleson! Anonymous
