Minnesota Work-Related Back Injury Attorneys
Construction sites often involve large equipment and heavy lifting. Sometimes heavy lifting can cause serious injury, either because an object is very large or awkward or because a worker lifts smaller over and over, causing a repetitive motion injury. Workers in a variety of occupations may be susceptible to lifting-related back injuries, but construction workers tend to get them more often because of their day-to-day work responsibilities. Serious back injuries can impact the rest of your life, and even prevent you from working and providing for your family.
If you have suffered a back injury from heavy lifting on the job, you may be entitled to workers compensation to help pay for your treatment and recovery costs. The Minnesota work-related back injury attorneys of Robert Wilson & Associates understand the potential costs of back injuries and are dedicated to helping our clients to seek the benefits that they are rightfully due.

Back Injuries Associated with Lifting
Heavy lifting is the primary cause of back injuries at the workplace. If a back injury is left untreated or if you are not allowed to rest, your injury can become more serious or it may not heal properly. Some of the potential ailments associated with lifting include:
- Muscle strains
- Herniated disks
- Fractured vertebrae
A healthy back is essential to a host of physical actions that we might take for granted, including things as seemingly simple as standing up or sitting in a chair for a prolonged period of time. Construction workers who suffer back injuries while lifting objects in the course of their employment cannot afford to delay seeking medical treatment and workers’ compensation benefits.
