Workers’ Compensation for a Bending or Lifting Injury

Help for Philadelphia Workers Suffering with a Repetitive Stress Injury

Bending down to lift objects puts a lot of stress and strain on your hips, knees, back, elbows and shoulders. If moving objects from one place to another is a part of your job, you should be given training and safety equipment (like a back brace) to ensure that you keep your body safe from harm. After months or years of doing that kind of work, however, you might discover that over time, you have seriously injured yourself.

When that happens, you want a dedicated and experienced Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer on your side to protect your interests. At Larry Pitt & Associates, our team of legal professionals is there to help injured Philadelphia workers obtain the benefits they need after they suffered a repetitive stress or strain injury.

The dangers of bending and lifting

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) accounted for 32 percent of all injury and illness cases in 2014 at a rate of 33.8 cases per 10,000 full-time workers,” making them one of the most common types of injury that year. Overexertion was the most common cause, and strains were the most common result. Bending and lifting heavy objects all day long can easily lead to overexertion and result in strains.

The most common kinds of strain injuries derived from excessive bending and lifting affecting the back and legs. Undue stress on the tendons, muscles and ligaments in your back could lead to:

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Chronic back pain
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Lower back strains
  • Spinal cord damage, leading to partial or permanent paralysis

Who is most at risk?

Certain industries and professions lead the pack when it comes to bending and lifting injuries. The Philadelphia workers most at risk of hurting their shoulders, backs, hips and knees include:

Repetitive stress injuries (RSI), especially those to the back, hips and knees, can lead to life-long mobility issues. At Larry Pitt & Associates, we help workers with RSIs obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to receive after they have been hurt on the job. If the injury you sustain is too damaging, and leaves you unable to work at all, we can also help you apply for Social Security Disability.
