Injured in a Factory Accident?
Find Counsel Now From Our Charleston Work Injury Attorneys
With so many factories in West Virginia, there comes an element of risk to workers. When these companies fail to provide a safe working environment for their employees, everyone suffers as a result. Sometimes the employers are violating the laws for managing employees and maintaining the equipment. The nature of factories as well—machinery, equipment, and heavy cargo loads, working from heights, are also inherently risky to employees.
If you or a loved one has been injured on-the-job in a factory, we urge you to contact Berthold Law Firm, PLLC. Whether the accident was due to negligence or your employer intentionally caused the incident, you have every right to take legal action.
What Are the Causes of Factory Accidents?
The day-to-day duties of employees in a factory is often strenuous and repetitive work. Workers may be required to operate heavy machinery, work on an assembly line, or work in proximity to hazardous or toxic materials. These factors can all contribute to possibly sustaining a serious injury.
Some of the most common types of injuries that occur in factories include:
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Chemical burns
- Crushing injuries
- Falling from heights
- Fallen objects
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Conveyor belt injuries
- Injuries from heavy equipment
We place a great deal of demand for factories and the industrial sector as a whole to produce products quickly. There is a tradeoff to this, unfortunately, because this could entail a reduction in the quality of the product and reduce safety to workers as a whole.
