Lifting Injury Photo

The most common on the job injuries occur when lifting. Proper posture, alignment, and technique help protect workers from some of these injuries.   However, the ideal circumstances often do not exist when attempting to lift materials or even people.

Sometimes, even the most seemingly minor back strains result in serious consequences.   

It is important to be sure your rights are protected by seeking prompt medical and legal advice.  Remember to give a complete history of your injury to both your doctor and your attorney to ensure that they understand the mechanics of the episode.  

Ouimette, Goldstein & Andrews can help make sure your rights are protected.
