Factory injuries could result in very severe and catastrophic injuries that no one should have to endure. If you have been injured on the job while working in a factory, you may have a claim against your employer for compensation. This compensation can cover a variety of different damages, including lost wages and future disability. Each worker’s compensation claim is different from one another, that is why it is very important to seek an experienced California and / or Nevada personal injury attorney to represent your rights, and to seek the maximum compensation available for your injuries.

Factory Injury Accident Statistics

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration:

  • 13 million workers in manufacturing Industries are at risk for fatal and nonfatal injuries
  • There are around 500 fatal work injuries in the manufacturing industry
  • A total of 4 million non-fatal injuries and illnesses were reported in the United States private Industry workplace in a single year

What is a worker’s compensation claim?

Workers’ compensation is the legal term used to describe an employment claim if an employee is hurt or injured on the job. An employee needs to fill out a form provided by their employer in order to seek compensation for any injuries suffered. The workers compensation benefits depend on the injuries suffered.

Your employer will most likely tell you to visit a medical provider to get an examination of severity of your injuries. If you have found yourself in such a circumstance, our manufacturing injury attorneys are prepared to represent you and make sure your rights are constantly represented.

Manufacturing Accident Injuries

The most common manufacturing industries that result in fatalities and factory accidents include:

  • Food manufacturing
  • Wood products Manufacturing
  • Paper manufacturing
  • Chemical manufacturing
  • Plastic manufacturing
  • Mineral manufacturing
  • Metal manufacturing
  • Machinery manufacturing
  • Transportation manufacturing

Factory injury accidents should be taken very seriously, and injured victims should have the right to seek compensation for any injuries they have suffered.

What causes factory and manufacturing injuries?

Factory related injuries are caused by a variety of different ways. Some of the most common factory related injuries include:

  • Machinery: Machinery could get tangled with the employee’s clothes and fingers. This could lead to very devastating permanent disabilities and disfigurement.
  • Lifting heavy machinery: constantly lifting and dealing with heavy machinery can take a toll on an employee, especially the back injuries they could potentially suffer.
  • Defective factory equipment: when there’s a defect in the factory equipment that causes one to suffer injuries, the victim may have a claim against the product manufacturer under a product liability claim.
  • Chemical spills: exposure to hazardous chemicals over time can take a toll on the employee’s health, especially their lungs.
  • Forklift accidents: oftentimes, negligent employees who do not have experience operating a forklift could cause injury to other employees
  • Slip and fall accident: this is one of the most common accidents that factory workers experience. Injuries from slip and fall accidents could range from minor accidents such as broken bones to major accidents such as traumatic brain injury.
  • Fires: constant hazardous materials and fumes could lead to fire explosions

Repetitive Factory Motions

One of the most common factory injuries involves repetitive motions that factory workers engage in. Examples of repetitive motions include:

  • Employees constantly bending over
  • Employees constantly carrying heavy objects throughout the factory
  • Employees constantly moving their hands to assemble products
  • Employees constantly typing in the office

Repetitive movements can cause very severe joint pain. This falls under a worker’s compensation claim that should not be taken lightly. Contact us to see how we can obtain compensation for your repetitive movement injuries.

Is a personal injury claim the same as a worker’s compensation claim?

A personal injury claim is not the same as a worker’s compensation claim. Personal injury claims can be appropriate in only specific instances. To determine if your injury falls under a personal injury claim, contact our personal injury attorneys today. In order to pursue a personal injury claim, the employee needs to show that the employer was negligent. In order to prove negligence, the plaintiff, also known as the injured party, needs to prove:

  • The employer had a duty to the plaintiff to act in a reasonably safe manner
  • The employer failed to act in a reasonably safe manner
  • Because the employer failed to act in a reasonably safe manner, the employee suffered an injury in the factory
  • The employee’s injuries now have led to damages the employee must have to pay

Wrongful Death Factory Accidents

If you have lost a loved one in a factory accident while your loved one was at work, contact our wrongful-death attorneys today for a free no risk consultation. Wrongful death is the claim that the decedent’s family members could bring forth and assert the rights of the deceased. Different examples of damages the family members could receive include lost wages, medical bills, etc. Other compensation that the deceased’s family members could recover include funeral and burial expenses.

How much do our factory injury attorneys cost?

Our contingency fee agreement allows us to take on any of the risks associated with your case.  When we win a settlement or judgment in your favor, we will take a percentage of the compensation.
