What to do if you've hurt yourself lifting at work
Due to the pain that they can cause, these kinds of occupational injuries can easily affect your ability to work effectively—they may even prevent you from working at all. The costs for medical treatment, lost income and ongoing rehabilitation can mount up quickly, too. That's why if you've been injured at work you should speak to a workers' compensation expert as soon as possible.
If you’ve been injured at work due to lifting, it doesn’t matter whose fault it is—you may be able to make a compensation claim through the workers’ compensation body in your state.
