Client Success Story
Attorney Kristen Gyolai and our team represented a man who sustained multiple back injuries over the course of several years. These injuries rendered him totally and permanently disabled from working.
His employer and its insurer argued that they were not liable because the man had done something at home to aggravate his back injury. Kristen Gyolai worked with doctors to prove that the injuries he suffered at work were a substantial contributing factor in his permanent and total disability and obtain the client a $115,000 settlement from his employer and the insurance company.
What jobs cause lifting injuries?
Fields Law knows that almost any job involving lifting can cause injuries, but some workers are more likely to be injured than others, including:
- Warehouse Workers
People who are in charge of moving boxes and equipment around warehouses often have to lift heavy items. If the items are too heavy or improper lifting techniques are used, injuries can occur.
- Construction Workers
Construction workers may be responsible for picking up heavy beams, building equipment, bags of concrete, and more at their work-sites. These heavy lifts can take their toll on workers’ backs and may even lead to injury.
- Delivery Drivers
Delivery drivers often have to load and unload heavy products and carry them into stores and homes without assistance. Many of the items are too heavy for one person to safely carry, and that can cause lifting injuries in the back, neck, and legs.
