Minnesota Shoulder Injury Attorneys
Construction work often involves heavy lifting, whether workers are lifting tools, supplies, or other objects that need to be relocated. However, sometimes workers have to lift too many heavy objects that they put serious physical strain on their shoulders, causing painful or debilitating injury. Other times, injury can occur after only one or a few lifts, but the object being lifted is extremely heavy. In either case, when workers are injured on the job while performing tasks that are expected of their occupation, they may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
Sometimes work injuries can be so serious that they prevent you from working at all, impeding your ability to financially support your loved ones. If you have suffered a shoulder injury caused by lifting in the course of your employment in construction, contact an experienced Minnesota shoulder injury attorneys of Robert Wilson & Associates by calling (612) 334-3444 to discuss the benefits that you may be due under the law.
Dangers of Shoulder Strain
Virtually any task performed with the arm incorporates the shoulder in its execution, and as a consequence of this, shoulder injuries can make it difficult for construction workers to carry out even the most basic occupation functions. The consequences of excessive strain on the shoulders due to heavy or repetitive lifting may include:
- Torn muscles
- Ruptured ligaments
- Rotator cuff tears
- Dislocations, which may become chronic
