A construction worker lifting a substantial weight or repeatedly lifting a weight may put considerable strain on their shoulders. The shoulders are commonly used in many manual labor tasks. In particular, the shoulders may be used any time any overhead work is necessary. These injuries can leave a construction worker without the strength to keep working, leaving them with serious financial troubles.

Lifting Injuries Affecting the Shoulders
The healthy use of the shoulders is critical for a construction worker. These workers need to be able to lift heavy objects such as materials and machines. Also, this type of work commonly requires a certain level of strength for special tasks. A shoulder injury can impede a worker from properly finishing their work.
The following injuries may occur because of a lifting accident:
- Muscle damage
- Shoulder joint damage
- Ligament and connective tissue damage
- Bone damage
These injuries can cause serious financial distress for a worker, as that individual may not be able to easily return to work. However, there may be legal action available to regain some of these expenses.
If you have been injured while working on a construction job, you may be entitled to pursue an injury claim. For more information regarding your options as an injured construction worker, contact the St. Louis shoulder injury lawyers of the Finney Law Office today at 314-646-0300.
