Muscular injury
claims lawyers

Have you injured a muscle at work?

Muscular injuries in the workplace caused by slipping, tripping or straining are more common than you might think. Even simple things, like a worn workstation mat or haphazardly-stored boxes can cause you to slip or trip. And, as a result of lifting objects too frequently with too little rest, repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) can develop over time.

Injuries range from minor bruising to your knees or legs to more serious and debilitating conditions—from pulled muscles to torn ligaments. A strained neck or persistent lower back pain can affect you for years, making it difficult to sit, turn or sleep. These, together with hip and shoulder injuries, can severely limit your movement and impact your ability to work.

Regardless of whether you’ve slipped, tripped, fallen or sustained an injury some other way, if you have suffered a muscle injury at work then you may be able to claim workers’ compensation in your state. It doesn’t matter whose fault it is—even if you contributed to your injury, you may still be eligible for compensation.
