Some of the injuries that factory workers sustain in the course of their career
As you can see from the settlements above, factory workers can endure a wide range of injuries. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Rubens Kress and Mulholland have successfully represented many employees who suffer from these injuries including Amazon workers, assembly plant workers and distribution plant workers.
Included in these cases are employees who were not able to return to their old jobs and received significant settlements for their lost wages for their entire lives. Here’s a list of common injuries that a factory worker can experience on the job:
- Carpal tunnel
- Meniscus tears and other knee injuries
- Wrist ligament tears and/or fractures
- Back injuries including herniated discs and vertebral fractures
- Shoulder injuries such as torn rotator cuff tears and impingement syndrome
We can help you understand the next course of action and get a proper settlement
If you are not able to return to a former job you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation at the expense of your employer or their insurance company.
If you must change careers and earn less money you may qualify for payments for this loss in wages. This may very well increase the settlement value of your case or the amount you are awarded at trial.
