Workplace injuries can be quite serious, leading to lifelong problems for workers who are injured on the job. This is especially true when it comes to lifting injuries, which are quite common in today’s workplace and are a frequent cause of lessened productivity and missed days at work.

The Law Offices Of Kropach & Kropach and our Los Angeles lifting accident attorneys are ready to help injured workers who experience lifting injuries get the compensation and benefits that they are entitled to under the law. This may include a mix of awards including medical payments and benefits for disabilities, among other damages that may be available to injured workers.

Types of Workplace Lifting Injuries

When jobs call for workers to lift, push, pull, turn and twist, it is not uncommon for these workers to experience significant injuries to the knees, arms, neck, and back. Sometimes the lifting is part of the claimant’s job description, especially for workers who are involved in nursing, retail, moving, logistics, construction, and landscaping. The Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach has a history of advocating for victims of lifting accidents who experience injuries such as:

  • Back injuries, including slipped and herniated disc injuries
  • Torn ligaments
  • Sprains
  • Tears of the ACL and other types of knee injuries
  • Displaced hip joints
  • Strains of the muscles
  • Hernia

Workers Compensation Benefits for Injured Workers

Workers who file timely claims with workers’ compensation may be entitled to various forms of compensation. The Los Angeles lifting accident attorney with Kropach & Kropach has a track record of helping lifting injury claimants with benefits that include:

  • Medical costs as a result of the lifting injury.
  • Income and wages lost during recuperation from a lifting injury.
  • Disability benefits (temporary or permanent) for truly serious claims.
  • Costs of retraining for a different job if the lifting injury prevents claimants from doing the same work they did prior to the accident.

Each case is unique. Discuss the particulars of your case with a Los Angeles workplace lifting accident attorney to determine which benefits you may be entitled to in your situation.

Time Limitations for Lifting Injury Accidents

When it comes to sustaining a lifting injury at work, claimants must file their claims within a specific time period in order to receive workers’ compensation. Within 30 days of the lifting accident, workers must formally inform their employers of their injuries. Still, reporting the injury to an employer does not always mean that the employer submitted a claim on behalf of the employee. Workers’ compensation allows California workers up to one year from the injury date to file a claim. After a year passes, however, any claim filed is considered invalid.
