Raleigh Construction Lifting Injuries Lawyers
Nearly every job on a construction site is physically intensive. With proper conditioning, equipment, and training, most of the health risks of such laborious work can be successfully overcome. But many construction companies fail to provide sufficient training or assistive devices (like lifting belts), or they short schedule employees, leaving too few hands on deck for the lifting and moving of massive objects. The injuries that result from lifting can be excruciatingly painful and might require a worker to miss time at work or to accept modified duties.
