It may not seem like much at the time — lift that bag of concrete, push that heavy load, turning at the waist while lifting an object — but work activities can cause serious injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while at work, those injuries can and should be covered by Colorado workers’ compensation.
Turning while lifting can rupture a disk. Lifting can create back injuries. Pushing, pulling, lifting and turning can cause back injuries and knee injuries. Heavier than usual exertion in any of these activities can even cause a heart attack.
The damage usually becomes obvious after the incident. Many times the symptoms become obvious only after the worker has gone home. Employers and their insurance carriers may question how and where the injury occurred.
At the Eley Law Firm, we are committed to helping victims of on-the-job injuries get all of the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve. Call us at 303-785-2828 for a free consultation.
