Factories & Manufacturing Plant
Workers in factories and manufacturing face numerous workplace hazards. This may include individuals who work in everything from meatpacking plants and automobile assembly lines to food packagers and grain handlers. Statistics show that more than 100,000 manufacturing workers suffer a job-related injury each year.
Though the risks differ depending on the industry, certain types of injuries are most common among factory workers:
- Over-extension, which can lead to musculoskeletal injuries;
- Repetitive motion, which can lead to the breakdown of soft tissues;
- Transportation accidents related to forklifts and other motor vehicles;
- Exposure to harmful chemicals and other substances that may lead to respiratory problems or poisonings;
- Fires and explosions that may lead to burn injuries;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Amputations from limbs getting caught in machines.
Many injuries sustained while working in a factory can be severe enough to upend your life and hamper your ability to earn an income. In many cases, lost wages impact not only the person who has been injured, but also his or her entire family. After becoming injured, an individual may lose the ability to work and earn an income for an extended period of time – perhaps even indefinitely.
If You’ve Been Injured in a Factory or Manufacturing Plant Accident
If you’ve been injured while working in a factory or manufacturing environment, you may be entitled to a monetary settlement to aid in your recovery. In general, the more severe the injury, the greater the medical expenses – and the greater the emotional trauma associated with the event. You may be entitled to additional compensation for lost wages if you are unable to work as a result of your injury.
