Potential Dangers of Queens Industrial and Manufacturing Accidents

Manufacturing-related injuries vary greatly. Workers can strain themselves from simply lifting objects that are too heavy. If an object exceeds a reasonable weight limit, you should be equipped with the necessary support to move the object safely, including lifting assistance devices, back braces, and more. Having multiple people work together to move heavy objects can greatly reduce the potential for injury.

Manufacturing workers can also be injured by the tools they work with on a daily basis. Clothing or hair can be caught in machinery, fingers and hands can be crushed, and sharp objects can easily cut workers or even amputate fingers.

A factory that uses hazardous materials to create or wash items must also provide workers with proper equipment, including masks, gloves, and protective eyewear, to protect them from dangerous fumes and substances. Without the right protective gear, training, or labeling of potentially harmful substances, workers may develop long-term respiratory illnesses and have a greater risk of developing cancer.

Electrocutions are another common hazard when working in industrial or manufacturing jobs. Besides electricians, workers can get shocked by loose wires or improperly wired or damaged equipment. Electrocution accidents can be life-threatening and result in internal organ damage, cardiac arrest, burns, and more.

How an Industrial and Manufacturing Accident Attorney Can Help

Hiring a Queens attorney can be crucial to recovering compensation for your injuries and related losses.

If you are injured while working, you most likely qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. A workers’ compensation attorney can help you obtain compensation for your medical bills as well as any lost wages while you are unable to work. Our Queens workers’ compensation lawyers can not only help you file for benefits, but they can also help you challenge any denials to your claim.

Some injured workers may also qualify for a personal injury lawsuit. A lawsuit can only be filed against a negligent third party, like a property owner, general contractor, or subcontractor, that contributed to your injury.

Our attorneys at Shulman & Hill can review the circumstances of your case to help determine possibly negligent parties, gather evidence that shows how you were injured, negotiate with the insurance companies to help you recover fair compensation, and represent you in a trial if the insurance company refuses to settle.

Common Industrial and Manufacturing Accident Injuries in Queens

While industrial and manufacturing injuries can take many forms, some of the most common problems include:

Lifting Injuries

Back injuries are relatively common and come from unsafe lifting attempts. Back injuries can keep one out of work or off their feet for quite a while. It is extremely important to follow OSHA guidelines by working as a team or using special equipment to lift large objects.

Falling Objects

Falling objects can result in a variety of injuries, but most occur from impact. A large falling object can break bones or even crush or pin a worker. Unfortunately, 73 people die from falling objects per year in the construction and manufacturing industry.

Falls

While the result of a fall can be a head injury or broken bones, they are among the most common types of injury. Falling on one’s head or neck can be fatal or cause serious lifelong problems. Worksites should be clear of all slip and trip hazards, and workers should exercise caution when working from a ladder or elevated height.

Lacerations

Machines and cutting equipment can cut more than the object intended. Mistakes when using saws, drills, nail guns, and other tools can result in cuts, gashes, and other lacerations. These injuries can have lasting—and often life-threatening—effects. If you suffer a severe laceration on the job site, it is important to seek medical help immediately.

Entanglement

Entanglement can also be a cause for concern. A limb or article of clothing that gets caught in a piece of equipment or conveyor belt can cause broken bones, dislocations, and even the loss of limbs.

Burns and Respiratory Issues

Manufacturing often involves using intense heat and dangerous chemicals. When workers lack proper protective equipment, exposure to harmful chemicals can cause respiratory illnesses and issues affecting the skin. Burns can also be common, particularly when workers lack gloves.
