Heavy Lifting Injuries

Lifting heavy objects carefully and safely can be a difficult task. It can be difficult to gauge the weight of an object before you lift it, and muscle fatigue during the lift can lead to serious injury. Back injuries are the most common injuries in a heavy lifting accident and can have a lasting impact on a person’s physical abilities. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a heavy lifting injury, the Stevens Point personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® are prepared to assist you with your case.

Causes of Heavy Lifting Injuries

Whether you are at home or on the job, there are several factors that can lead to a heavy lifting injury. Some of the most common causes of back injuries from lifting heavy objects include:

  • Poor training on how to properly lift objects
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Poorly packed boxes that cause the weight to shift during the lift
  • Lack of information regarding the weight and contents of a box
  • Poor supervision

Not having the right equipment and assistance can lead to a serious accident. Lifting an object that is too heavy, or improperly lifting an object, can lead to a severe back, spine, knee, or leg injury. If you or someone you know has been hurt in a heavy lifting injury, either on the job or elsewhere, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. Someone may be responsible for the hazardous conditions that led to your accident and you may be eligible to recover compensation for your injuries and damages.
