Lifting, Pushing & Pulling Injuries
People who regularly lift, push and/or pull objects as part of their day-to-day work activities may be at risk of developing some serious injuries that could, in the worst cases, leave them with long-term impairments and/or lasting impacts to their overall quality of life. When the nature of a person’s job results in him developing lifting, pushing and/or pulling injuries, the injured worker will likely be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits and will have the best chances of obtaining the maximum possible benefits by working with an experienced attorney.
Types of Lifting, Pushing & Pulling Injuries
Some of the most common types of lifting, pushing and pulling injuries that workers can sustain include (but are not limited to):
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Shoulder, elbow and/or wrist injuries
- Knee injuries
- Strains and sprains
- Dislocated joints
Factors That Can Exacerbate Lifting, Pushing & Pulling Injuries
Lifting, pushing and/or pulling injuries are more likely to occur when any of the following are also a factor for workers:
- They have received insufficient or improper job training.
- They are not provided with the appropriate personal protective gear (such as back or knee braces).
- They working in especially hot conditions (such as outdoors during the summer or near industrial ovens or furnaces).
- They have a pre-existing health condition (like back problems, tendonitis and/or hernias).
- They work for excessive hours and, therefore, are tired or exhausted when performing this type of physical labor (Being tired when attempting to lift, push or pull something increases the risk that workers will strain themselves and become injured).
