Common Manufacturing Accident Injuries
Manufacturing plants are filled with equipment and materials that place workers at risk of injury each day.
As a result, those who work in manufacturing face the following injuries:
- Cuts and laceration
- Fractures and broken bones
- Loss of fingers or limbs in machinery
- Electric shock
- Burn injuries
Each of these injuries alter the lives of those who experience them significantly. Those with these injuries lose the ability to work and, as a result, struggle to make a living. Additionally, medical bills incurred while in the process of recovering become a weight on the shoulders of those suffering from a manufacturing accident. This means that medical debt builds and becomes a difficult obstacle to overcome. However, workers’ compensation offers hope to those who feel buried by the struggles brought on by their accident.
Understanding Workers’ Compensation in Pennsylvania
If a worker was injured on the job, they likely qualify for workers’ compensation. It often does not matter how the injury occurred—the only requirement is that the injury happened while working under the supervision of the employer. Notably, time is an important factor in making a claim for workers’ compensation. Those who have been injured have limited time to report an injury. It is also important that a doctor is visited as soon as possible after the injury. This ensures that a verifiable record is made indicating when the injury happened.
When to Hire a Pennsylvania Work Accident Attorney
Though workers’ compensation laws are put in place to protect those who are injured, they do not always work as intended. Employers will often try to avoid taking responsibility for injuries that occur to their employees. However, accidents are always preventable, and employers must be held accountable when their neglect causes harm.
The following situations call for the assistance of a lawyer:
- The claims process is taking too long or is being purposely slowed down.
- The injured party suspects that they are not being offered proper compensation.
- Multiple companies or individuals are involved.
- If the accident resulted in a wrongful death.
- If the employer is denying any responsibility for the incident.
