Lifting Injury Lawyers
Many workplaces require the lifting of heavy objects, often on a daily basis. Not surprisingly, lifting injuries are among the most common types of workplace injuries.
At Kampf, Schiavone & Associates, our lawyers are dedicated to getting full compensation for victims of lifting injuries. We bring extensive combined experience to workers’ compensation cases in San Bernardino and throughout California’s Inland Empire.
What Type Of Lifting Injury Does Your Case Involve?
Lifting injuries come in many different forms. They typically fall into two main categories: single-event injuries and repetitive motion injuries. A single-event lift injury is when a person is injured at work while lifting a single item. Repetitive lifting injuries develop in the lower back or elsewhere over time from lifting heavy objects again and again.
Lifting injuries can impact many different body parts. Lower back injuries are often the result of a single lift or repetitive lifting. These include slipped disks and herniated disks, as well as pulled muscles. Lower back injuries can take a lot of time and rehabilitation work to heal. Our attorneys work hard to make certain victims get the time off, wage benefits and medical benefits they need to heal properly after a lower back injury.
We also diligently represent victims of other lift injuries, including upper back injuries, shoulder injuries, hip injuries and knee injuries. Lifting injuries are often joint injuries and soft-tissue injuries that are difficult to heal. If you have suffered this type of injury, you need an advocate on your side who knows the workers’ compensation system. We can help.
