Common Types of Warehouse and Factory Worker Injuries in Illinois
Because factory and warehouse workers often work with heavy and dangerous objects and equipment, there is a greater chance of suffering a serious injury. Some of the most common include:
- Arm and shoulder injuries;
- Back injuries;
- Knee injuries;
- Lacerations and broken bones; and
- Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
Occupational illnesses and repetitive stress injuries are also common in the manufacturing industry. These conditions are not the result of one-time accidents, but are developed from ongoing exposure to toxic substances or performing a repetitive task over a period of time. Because these conditions develop over time, it can be more difficult to prove eligibility for a workers' compensation claim. Some workplace incidents are the fault of a third party other than your employer. In third party injury cases, you may be able to pursue damages under personal injury laws. If you have worked the required number of quarters, you may also be eligible for a Social Security Disability claim.When you suffer injury in a warehouse or factory, it is important to know all your legal options.
