Warehouse and Factory Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Chicago
Warehouses and factories are often hazardous environments for workers, posing a risk of minor to severe injury in many cases. Workers in these settings are frequently required to perform tasks that involve working in potentially dangerous facilities, operating heavy machinery, and lifting heavy items. Each of these factors can contribute to injury.
If you experience an injury in a warehouse or factory while working, you may be eligible to compensation through a workers’ comp claim, with the help of a reliable warehouse and factory workers’ compensation attorney. However, it’s important to understand what types of injuries qualify for workers’ comp and how to go about filing a claim.
Different Types of Factory and Warehouse Worker Injuries
Workers in factory and warehouse facilities are often injured in many different ways, but some of the more common types of injuries sustained include:
- Knee injuries such as menisci and torn ligaments
- Fractures and broken bones or lacerations from accidents such as slipping and falling, or impact from falling objects
- Shoulder injuries such as torn rotator cuffs
- Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) such as arthritis, which cause pain while limiting mobility in joints and muscles.
- Back injuries such as herniated discs, which are often caused by frequent heavy lifting or a one-time accident
In addition to these injuries, there are many other minor to critical injuries that could make you eligible for compensation. Many of the injuries that factory and warehouse workers are likely to suffer from are referred to as repetitive trauma injuries, which result from repeating the same task over time. These types of injuries are more challenging to prove in workers’ compensation cases, but a reputable workers’ compensation attorney may be able to help recover compensation in any case.
