Minnesota Leg Injury Attorneys
Working on a construction site has its own dangers and difficulties, and most construction workers are aware of these potential dangers. However, sometimes construction workers are injured because of seemingly safe job requirements, such as heavy lifting. Construction-related buildings often require heavy equipment and materials, and workers are sometimes expected to lift these materials. Despite a worker’s ability to lift heavy objects, the legs may be injured in the process, sometimes without even knowing it. Leg injuries can be very serious, particularly for construction workers, and can leave them unable to work.
If you have suffered a leg injury due to lifting in the course of performing construction work, you may be entitled to pursue workers’ compensation benefits. Contact the experienced Minnesota leg injury attorneys of Robert Wilson & Associates today at (612) 334-3444 for assistance with your claim from the initial filing through litigation, if it becomes necessary.
