Los Angeles Heavy Workers’ Compensation Attorney
A pushing or pulling injury or a heavy lifting injury on the job is unfortunately fairly common among workers, including:
- FedEx delivery personnel
- Trade industry workers
- Construction workers
- Trash haulers
- Any worker whose job requires moving heavy items such as appliances
Pushing, pulling and lifting injuries typically cause ailments, including:
- Bone fractures
- Back injury
- Neck injury
- Knee injury
- Hip injury
- Shoulder injury
- Foot injury
- Hand injury
- Internal injuries
Exacerbation of pre-existing conditions can make accurate diagnosis of the effect of a given workplace accident difficult. You may have injured your knee or shoulder while pushing or pulling partially because the site of healing of a previous injury put stress on that part of your body. Be as honest and detailed as you can in your discussion of the circumstances of your injury with your doctor. He or she will want to take into account any previous injuries as well as examining your condition after the most recent injury.
Workers’ compensation can provide coverage for medical treatment and wage loss benefits if your pushing, pulling or lifting injury happened on the job. Remember that you should report the injury to your employer first. Next, report the injury to a medical professional and get an evaluation of your condition and what type of treatment is needed. If your doctor ultimately believes you are unable to return to your previous line of work, your employer should assign you to lighter duties. If your work is interrupted for some reason because of your injury, you may qualify for supplemental job displacement benefits.
