Common Injuries in Lifting Accident Cases

Lifting accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from minor to severe. Some of the most common injuries we encounter in industrial accident cases include:

  • Arm and Shoulder Injuries
  • Back and Neck Injuries
  • Hernias
  • Fractures and Broken Bones
  • Occupational Diseases
  • Paralysis
  • Soft Tissue Damage
  • Spinal Cord Injuries

No matter how severe, injuries sustained can have a lasting impact on your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Our dedicated work injury lawyers and staff in Southern California have the experience to help you pursue compensation for your specific injuries.

Steps Should You Take After a Lifting Accident

Immediately following an industrial accident, taking the right steps is crucial to protect your rights and build a strong case. Here’s what you should do:

  • Seek medical attention promptly, even if your injuries seem minor.
  • Report the accident to your employer or supervisor as soon as possible.
  • If possible, document the scene by taking photos, collecting witness statements, and noting any hazardous conditions that may have contributed to the accident.
  • Maintain thorough records of your medical treatments, expenses, and missed workdays.
  • Contact an experienced work injury lawyer to understand your legal rights and options.

This last step is crucial, as insurance companies often provide less compensation than you may be entitled to. As your work injury lawyers, Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison will stand beside you every step of the way, making sure you receive the temporary and permanent compensation you deserve.

What Damages Can You Seek in a Lifting Accident Case?

Following an accident, you may be eligible to seek various forms of compensation, either through workers’ compensation and/or through a personal injury claim. Between the two, you may be eligible to receive compensation for:

  • Medical Expenses and Treatment
  • Temporary Disability for not being able to work.
  • Permanent Disability Benefits
  • Wrongful Death Benefits

Our experienced lawyers will assess your case’s unique circumstances to determine the appropriate compensation to pursue on your behalf.

Should You File a Workers’ Compensation and/or Personal Injury Claim?

Regardless of the severity of your injuries resulting from a lifting accident, you deserve compensation for your work injuries. The question will be: how much compensation and which claim is the right one to pursue?

Determining whether to file a workers’ compensation and/or a personal injury claim can be complex. Workers’ compensation typically covers injuries that occur in the course of employment, regardless of fault. Personal injury claims, on the other hand, involve establishing liability and may provide additional compensation. This can come into play if your injury was caused by your employer’s egregious carelessness or willful misconduct, or a negligent third party.

Whether you are pursuing a workers’ compensation claim and/or a personal injury claim, the insurance company is going to try every tactic they can think of to downplay your injuries and suffering and reduce or even deny your compensation. To protect your rights and interests, it is extremely important to have a work injury lawyer on your side who is going to fight just as hard to maximize your compensation.
