Don't Ignore That Muscle Ache!

You might find it surprising that of all the types of work-related injuries, the second-most common (right after falls/trips) is...muscle strain.

Anyone who has to lift heavy boxes/equipment while on the job will definitely attest to this fact. 

These injuries can start small...a minor strain...but over time, those strains can become tears/pulls, and lead to extremely painful injuries. These injuries can leave a hard-working employee like yourself out of work for quite some time.

Employers should be teaching their employees how to properly lift heavy work-related materials, but we know...that they don't. We've talked to so many of our clients who tell us that they weren't given many directions at all on the job site...they were just assumed to know what to do. 

It's the responsibility of the employer to ensure that all their employees are working in safe conditions...and under proper safety measures. 

Time and time again though, employers skirt these protective measures...and the result is hard-working individuals getting severely injured at the workplace.

Due to the lack of safety measures, accidents will happen more and more frequently, leading to workers being injured while on the job. Do you think the negligent employer will care whether you receive your full compensation? If you already know they don't care about your safety when you're able-bodied, why would they think twice about you now that you're injured?

We at Loney & Schueller are dedicated to fighting for the injured worker. You have rights...rights that need to be exercised. You are owed full-compensation for the injuries you experience at the workplace, and Eric, Randy, and Sarah are ready to fight for you.
