Experienced Attorneys for Meat Packing Worker Injuries – File Here
Individuals working in meat packing know how dangerous their jobs are, on account of the sharp and automated tools that they use on a daily basis. Before workers are signed on to the job, they are provided with sufficient training which typically has a focus on worker safety. Due to the fact that these machines are automated, there may not be a way to turn them off in a timely manner should a workers’ hand get caught in them, resulting in some form of severe and even disabling injury. Meat packers are required to wear the appropriate gear as mandated by government work safety agency OSHA as well as report any unsafe work environments to the same. Meat packing workers often get a false sense of security due to their having workers’ compensation, which may not entirely protect them in the event that they get injured on account of the paltry and limited payouts that are available for injured workers. If you are an injured meat packing worker and are dissatisfied with your union or the proposed workers’ compensation benefits, it may be time to get an attorney who will help you get compensated in line with your injuries, and we’re here to help with that.

Here are some of the common injuries faced by meat packers
- Burns due to machine cutting equipment getting so hot over time on account of them working for hours on end without being turned off. The heat can transfer to a person’s hands upon contact, causing blisters and even scars.
- Repetitive motion injury due to performing the same hand movements over and over for eight or more hours a day, without taking mandated breaks. This can lead to things like carpal tunnel, torn tendons and ligaments, and inflamed nerves.
- Crush injuries and amputations are common injuries in meat packing factories, usually caused by instrument malfunction or worker fatigue, which causes them to make mistakes they would never have made had they taken frequent work breaks.
