Safety is a high priority at many Minnesota workplaces. If your job involves frequent lifting, it is important to use proper lifting techniques to prevent an injury.
When an employee sustains an injury on the job, it can lead to serious physical and financial hardships. Thankfully, there are workers' compensation benefits that can help to alleviate some of that stress.
While some jobs in Minnesota involve greater risk than others due to the physical demands involved, we at Lindberg Law recognize that workplace injuries can happen anywhere, in all types of workplaces. Even those who perform sedentary desk jobs are not immune; the injuries associated with them may be different yet still have the potential to prevent you from performing your job duties effectively.
Health care workers may not seem like a group of employees who are particularly at risk for on-the-job injuries. However, the reality is that this sector is one of the most dangerous in terms of workplace injuries.
