Many work-related injuries are the result of lifting heavy objects. These injuries may occur after a single lift, or they may develop over time because of repeated lifting. If you suffered a lifting injury at work, you have the right to request workers' compensation.

At Sawers & Sackel, our lawyers and our legal team are dedicated to helping injured workers in Buffalo and throughout Western New York. With more than 150 years of combined experience, we can help you get the benefits you need to move forward after a work-related injury from lifting.

Back Injuries From Lifting

Lifting injuries are typically back injuries. They are often lower back injuries involving herniated disks or pinched nerves. They may also involve pulled back muscles or other damage.

Not only is a back injury painful, but it also requires time and care to heal. Workers' compensation benefits should cover the cost of surgery, physical therapy or any other treatment you need to recover as fully as possible from the back injury. Our attorneys will work hard to see that you get all of the benefits you are entitled to.

Other Injuries From Lifting

Lifting a heavy object can also lead to knee injuries, ankle injuries, shoulder injuries and other injuries. Our lawyers stand up for the rights of all lifting injury victims.
