Schaumburg, IL Lifting Injury Attorneys
Workers' Comp. Lawyers for Heavy Lifting Injuries in Cook and DuPage Counties
Anyone who lifts heavy objects while on the job is at risk for a lifting injury. These injuries are extremely common and can be severely debilitating. Recovering from a lifting injury typically requires time away from lifting, which may mean time during which you will not be able to work. At the Illinois law firm of Grauer & Kriegel, LLC, our attorneys help injured workers obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they need and deserve.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Illinois
There are many jobs for which lifting is required. Even with proper lifting technique, injuries can and do happen. Lifting heavy objects can result in back and neck injuries, rotator cuff injuries, torn biceps, wrist injuries, and a variety of other injuries. Some injuries may occur in an acute accident, while others may be repetitive injuries that progressively worsen over time. Our attorneys are experienced in handling workers’ compensation claims for lifting injuries that occur in all types of professions including:
- Nurses and other health care professionals who lift patients;
- Warehouse workers lifting pallets and inventory;
- Construction workers lifting building materials;
- Airline workers lifting baggage;
