Helping Injured Factory Workers Get The Compensation They Deserve
Meat processing plants, also known as slaughterhouses, generally push line workers to the limit, forcing them to make hundreds of cuts with sharp knives and other equipment throughout the day — and the meat just keeps on coming.
Other types of factory workers operate heavy machinery or dangerous tools on a day-to-day basis. Any lapse in safety or judgment — from improperly maintained equipment to worker shortcuts — can mean serious injury or worse.
Factory Work: One Of The Most Dangerous Jobs
At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, we have decades of experience handling workers’ compensation claims. Unfortunately, injuries to factory workers are very common. We’ve represented our share of injured people — from meatpackers to those who repair, maintain or operate industrial machines.
It’s no wonder that many meatpackers and others who work in industrial meat production sustain repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel — or are cut by knives or crushed by heavy machinery — and too often it’s because the employer has done very little to provide safe working conditions.
