On-The-Job Lifting Can Cause Serious Injuries
Some back and shoulder injuries may be caused by a unique lifting event, but often they are caused or aggravated by repeated lifting motions. Workers who have injured their backs and shoulders while lifting may encounter obstacles when seeking workers’ compensation benefits.
To schedule your free consultation with a workplace lifting injury lawyer, call an experienced attorney at Berger & Michelena: 213-624-9999.
If you have suffered a lifting injury that prevents you from working or adversely affects your ability to do your job, you may need the assistance of a workers’ compensation lawyer.
Repetitive Strain Injury Lawyers
“For many, not being able to work because of an injury is a frustrating and frightening time. Our law firm is committed to helping injured workers get the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve.” – Louis H. Berger
Berger & Michelena is a team of lawyers that has helped thousands of injured workers in Southern California obtain workers’ compensation benefits. We can represent you even if your claim has been denied or a doctor has told you to go back to work before you have fully recovered. Our goal when representing you will be to obtain all of the medical care and disability benefits you are entitled to receive.
Getting A Second Medical Opinion
You may have been seen at Concentra, U.S. HealthWorks or another medical provider network, only to be told by the doctor that your injury has already healed or there is nothing preventing you from going back to work. If you still feel pain or you are not capable of resuming your job responsibilities, our law firm can help you get a second medical evaluation that objectively describes your condition and the medical care you need. Often, this second medical evaluation provides the key to getting workers’ compensation benefits. During the time it takes to obtain the approval of your claim or resumption of benefits, we can assist you in applying for California State Disability Benefits that can provide compensation until you start receiving workers’ compensation benefits.
If you have suffered an on-the-job lifting injury in Los Angeles or elsewhere in Southern California, Berger & Michelena stands ready to help you.
