Help For Workers Who Have Suffered Lifting Injuries
Back injuries suffered on the job are serious business. These injuries often go undetected for a period of time, can take time to heal and may even require surgery to correct.
If your serious lifting injury was caused by a workplace accident, Minnesota workers’ compensation should start working for you. You should be able to count on reimbursement for medical bills and a percentage of lost wages — not a failure to acknowledge your injury by your employer.

Quality, Experienced Representation From The Law Office Of Thomas B. Schway
A lifting injury at your employment can cause a broad range of physical problems, such as:
- Herniated disk or bulging disk in the back or neck areas
- Cervical and lumbar area muscle sprain or strain
- Whiplash or soft tissue injuries
- Nerve impingement with pain in the legs or arms
- Sciatica causing pain when walking or sitting
- Degenerative disc disease
Don’t be surprised if your employer and its insurance company question how your lifting injury, or neck and back injury, happened. Your symptoms may not have manifested themselves until later, when you arrived home after work. Several separate incidents may have led to the first detection of symptoms.
Employers and insurers should do what’s right when loyal, hard-working employees are injured on the job. If your workplace injury hasn’t been recognized, please contact us. The Law Office of Thomas B. Schway can help.
