Similar to slip-and-fall injuries, lifting and moving heavy items are often directly linked to one's specific employment, with certain professions being more susceptible to these workplace fatalities than others. If you work in construction, logistics, landscaping, retail, nursing, warehouse operations, or the moving industry, the likelihood of experiencing lifting injuries during your employment is considerably higher. Our firm is here to ensure you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to.
Time Limit to File a Work Injury Claim in Encino
Individuals sustaining a lift work injury must be aware of the limited time available to file a compensation claim. Workers must report their lift injury to their employer within 30 days of the incident. Importantly, this initial report does not automatically initiate the workers' compensation claim.

Failing to file a claim within this one-year timeframe may result in the victim being unable to recover entitled compensation.
