Help.

So I found a job. I have been there for three weeks, it’s a great job but I’m having trouble doing the physical work because before this job I was working at amazon, and a stacked wall of heavy boxes 100+ pounds in a trailer fell on me and I ended up with a horrible back injury a year ago. I ended up leaving amazon because they wouldn’t do anything for my injury. Well now I’m at Valvoline And I told them about my situation and they said they would put me on a easier task but they still have me doing the hard physical labor and I just can’t physically do it anymore. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Look for another job that's not so physically demanding.

File for workman's compensation. You were injured while on the job. Now you have a disability from that injury. File.

The labor intensive work is always as stated....- labor intensive. Just know your limits, dont over do it. I'm sure this company wouldn't do much neither if another accident were to happen. I was in an auto accident in 2013 and was left with debilitating pain and on life support for 3 days. Luckily I'm okay now, but the pain is a constant reminder to know my limits. Ppl like us, know that the struggle is real, just keep up the hard work and it will eventually pay off. Workhard and at the best of your ability. You can always rest when you are in the grave.....many years from now.

You should contact a work rights lawyer and make sure that you can get a case that shows you explained the issues to Amazon and if possible prove that they made you do work you did not sign up to do from the get go.

Not to sound blunt, but find another job before you end up disabled trying to lift items you surely shouldn't. That job will survive without you, but will you live a productive life with it?

You may be eligible for workers’ compensation. You must be an employee. Your employer must carry workers' comp insurance. You must have a work-related injury or illness. You must meet your state's deadlines for reporting the injury and filing a workers' comp claim.

Hurry before it’s too late.
