Savannah Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Helps Manufacturing Plant Workers

Highly personal and effective representation for injury claims

If you work in manufacturing in Southern Georgia, the risk of bodily injury is all around you. You’re also exposed to environmental factors that can cause a work-related illness. But if you’re hurt in an accident, or you come down with a debilitating illness, you may have the right to compensation from various sources. At Anderson Law Firm, we’ve been helping injured workers since 1993. We understand the anxiety and financial hardship that a serious injury or illness causes. We can help you obtain the full range of workers’ compensation benefits you’re entitled to, and even explore the possibility of recovery from a personal injury lawsuit. If you have any questions about your rights, a concerned member of our legal team is happy to provide answers. If you are eligible for compensation, we’ll provide the effective representation you need to assert your rights.

Experience assisting factory workers with injury and illness claims

Our law firm has helped clients who work in various manufacturing plants, including paper factories, poultry packaging plants, sugar refineries, and aerospace manufacturing. We understand the circumstances that contribute to injuries and illnesses from working in these places, such as:

  • Constant noise — Factory workers who are exposed to high decibel noise on a regular basis often suffer hearing loss.
  • Exposure to caustic chemicals — The result can be irritated eyes and skin as well as respiratory illnesses, including asthma, emphysema, COPD, lung cancer, and even mesothelioma.
  • Heat exposure — Working in the intense heat causes fatigue and injuries from overexertion, including heart attack.
  • Movement of heavy equipment and machinery — Factory machinery and vehicles in motion can cause severe crush injuries and severed limbs.
  • Repetitive tasks at work stations — Performing repetitive tasks for long hours can wear down the overworked parts of the body, leading to disabling pain in the neck, back, shoulders, and other parts of the body.
  • Slip-and-fall hazards — Messy floors, stairs and walkways create conditions where a slip or trip and fall accident is highly likely.

When conditions at your workplace lead to an injury or illness, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, in many cases, an insurance company may refuse to acknowledge the injury is work-related. If you have difficulty accessing those benefits, we can provide effective representation to overcome a claim denial. You may also have the right to file a negligence lawsuit, which could provide full compensation.

Third-party negligence lawsuits for factory injuries

Workers’ compensation provides extremely important protection for injured workers, but it only pays two-thirds of your lost wages and pays nothing to compensate for your pain and suffering. However, under certain circumstances, you can recover full personal injury damages with a third-party negligence lawsuit. By this we mean that a person with whom you do not have an employer-employee or coworker relationship was careless and his or her carelessness caused your injury.

In a factory setting, a third-party lawsuit most often comes about because defective industrial machinery caused a worker’s injury. The worker is free to sue the manufacturer of the machinery for producing a dangerous product. Another scenario occurs when a worker at one station in the course of work injures a worker at another station. Under those circumstances, it’s clear the work stations were placed too closely together for safe operation. This means there was a defect in the design of the factory floor, and an industrial architect could be liable for the injury.

When you suffer a severe injury in a factory setting, it’s important to speak to a knowledgeable attorney. When you consult Anderson Law Firm, we explain your rights and your legal options, so you can recover the full compensation you deserve.
