Factory and warehouse jobs are an essential part of northern New Jersey’s workforce. But with so many manufacturing jobs, there is the high risk of injury, especially for temporary workers. The kind of injuries you sustain can be more life-threatening than those in an office job. If you’ve been injured while working in a factory or warehouse, then you are entitled to the same workers’ compensation as an officer worker.
For the past 26 years, Jersey City workers’ compensation lawyer Anthony Carbone has been fighting for the rights of warehouse and factory workers throughout New Jersey. If you get injured, contact us immediately.
Types of Warehouse/Factory Worker Injuries
Warehouse and factory workers face different workplace accidents than the rest of us. Some of the more common of types of injuries include:
- Back injuries from lifting heavy items
- Musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis which can limit mobility and cause muscle and joint pain
- Knee and shoulder injuries
- Broken bones from slip, trip and fall accidents or being hit by falling objects
Many of these injuries are caused by repetitive actions, tasks that could cause a lot stress to your muscles and tendons. Since it’s not as straightforward of an injury as breaking a bone, these types of injuries may be hard for you to claim workers’ compensation. In addition, if you are only working temporarily at a warehouse or factory, the employer may say you’re an independent contractor and refuse to file your claim. But this doesn’t mean you are not entitled to workers’ compensation from the company. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney fighting for your rights.
