Lancaster Workers’ Compensation Lawyer for Workplace Accidents

Lifting accidents account for a significant number of work injuries each year. Injuries that result from on-the-job lifting are a common reason for workers’ compensation claims in Lancaster County and throughout Pennsylvania. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), approximately 35 percent of missed days at work were the result of the types of injuries associated with lifting, including shoulder and back injuries, overexertion, and trauma. If you’ve suffered a lifting accident at work, you need to contact a Lancaster workplace accident attorney to ensure you receive the maximum compensation.

Types of Work-Related Lifting Accidents and Injuries

Many occupations require some type of lfting to be performed at work. While a considerable number of lifting accidents occur while the employee is engaged in lifting heavy objects, this is not always the case. Lifting lighter objects and repetitive lifting can also result in workplace injuries. Holding items for long periods, even if loads are light, increases back and shoulder injury risks. Repeated exertion, such as when pulling wire, can fatigue muscles and also result in serious injuries.

Laborers who work in construction, people who handle freight and materials, truck drivers, and nursing assistants are just some examples of the types of workers who are susceptible to lifting accidents and injuries at work.

Overexertion from lifting, as well as from twisting and carrying motions, can cause severe and painful injuries, including the following:

Strained back

A strained back, or lumbar strain, is a common lifting-related injury. This type of low back strain could result from a specific instance of heavy lifting or from constant stress on the back from repeated lifting.

Herniated disc

A herniated or bulging disc can result from lifting a heavy object, as well as pushing, pulling, or climbing.  A herniated disc can cause permanent limitations, resulting in wage loss. Surgery is often necessary to treat a herniated disc.  It may also lead to degenerative disc disease and sciatica.

Shoulder injury

Shoulder injuries are a common type of lifting injury. A rotator cuff tear is extremely painful and could require surgery to repair the tear. Rehabilitation can be lengthy and not all shoulder injury sufferers are able to return to work.
