Warehouse, Industrial And Manufacturing Injuries
A traumatic accident such as a fall, forklift accident, explosion or falling object can cause serious injury and wrongful death. Additional causes of warehouse worker injury can include defective or worn machinery, missing safety equipment and inadequate worker training. Any of these issues and accidents can result in:
- Brain injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burns and electric shock
- Broken and crushed bones
- Loss of vision or hearing
People who work in manufacturing and warehouse jobs may also suffer injuries caused by performing repetitive motions. Repetitive stress injuries can include carpal tunnel syndrome as well as lifting injuries to the back, knees, shoulders and other joints.
If defective machines, tools or safety equipment cause your accident, you may be able to collect damages from the negligent manufacturer in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits. We can file a third-party personal injury or wrongful death suit in these cases.
