Construction workers, electricians, and factory workers are commonly required to lift heavy objects and crouch down into small spaces on the daily. Working in these industries can be very demanding on the body, especially after years and years on the job. Sometimes, it’s not just one single instance that causes a significant neck injury; it can be the culmination of years of hard work.
If you have gone through something like this, you need to report the injury right away. This is the only way you will receive workers’ compensation. Even waiting two or three days to notify your employer is far too long. An injury report is something that has to be made as soon as possible.
