Construction work takes a toll on the human body. The everyday lifting of heavy objects increases the risk of worker injury and permanent damage. Every time you lift something heavy, you continually run the risk of seriously injuring yourself. The construction company must create an environment that limits the risk of its workers sustaining a lifting injury.
In the event someone suffers an injury from lifting a heavy item, the construction company will be held accountable for their wrongdoings.
The Law Office of Brock Duke’s team of attorneys will work tooth and nail to ensure that you are reasonably compensated for any injuries that may have changed the course of your life.
Construction Site Lifting Injuries
Proper lifting requires the use of the entire body. Safety devices such as back support, gloves, proper boots, and proper clothing can help reduce the risk of a heavy lifting injury. The construction company must ensure that all workers on the site are equipped with proper safety equipment. Failure to do so may cause the construction company to be liable for lifting injuries suffered by the company’s employees.
Heavy lifting can cause the following injuries:
- Herniated Discs
- Nerve Damage
- Back or Neck Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Hands and Feet Injuries
- Shoulder Injuries
