Legal Help for Injured Warehouse Workers – More Inside
Warehouse workers number in the hundreds of thousands, and they are responsible for the safe storage of inventory, the moving of inventory to different locations, maintenance of the warehouse, labeling products, organizing shipments as well as supervising them, and loading product onto trucks and so on. They are an indispensable part of our retail-dominant economy, but are often prone to injuries that can be attributed to sheer negligence. Warehouse work is inherently fraught with risks, but OSHA safety regulations exist in order to ensure that you are kept safe at all times in an otherwise unsafe profession. While you can do everything in your power to follow safety protocol, the actions of one negligent individual can cause all the safety precautions work to come tumbling down. Warehouse worker injuries can be longstanding and debilitating, and some workers may not even be able to come back to work after recovering from their injuries on account of developing a disabling condition. In such cases, filing a workers’ compensation claim as well as a third party claim with a warehouse injury attorney is the right and natural thing to do.
