Lifting heavy objects is a routine activity for many employees, and it often seems harmless until you feel the pang of an injury in your back, legs or arms. The injury may occur immediately as a result of sudden trauma or as a cumulative strain from repeated lifting.
If you have suffered such an injury, you have a right to pursue a workers’ compensation claim. At Tillman & Associates in Atlanta, Georgia, we can help you develop your claim and ensure that you receive fair treatment from your employer and its insurer.
Workers’ compensation benefits should cover expenses like medical, chiropractic and physical therapy bills, out-of-pocket expenses like medications and a certain percentage of the wages you have lost as a result of missed work.
Many accidents involving lifting cause serious injury to the lumbar region of the back. Work-related back injuries are particularly debilitating, requiring weeks or months to recover. Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers have a strong record of securing benefits for victims of back and spinal injuries.
