Workers’ Compensation For Manufacturing Injuries

The health care industry and manufacturing companies are two of the largest employers in the Harrisburg area — and they also happen to be two of the most dangerous industries for American workers.

If you are a health care worker or work in the manufacturing industry, and were injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. At DiLoreto, Cosentino & Bolinger P.C., our team of experienced workers’ comp lawyers will guide you through the process.

Our attorneys assist with everything from preparing and filing initial applications to appealing denied claims. We also represent injured workers who are at risk of having their benefits reduced or stopped. Contact us today to learn more about your right to workers’ compensation.

Common Health Care Injuries

According to recent studies, the health care industry is one of the most dangerous industries for workers. In 2013, almost 20 percent of all non-fatal workplace injuries in the U.S. occurred in the health care industry. These injuries are due, in part, to a lack of safety regulations. Common injuries included:

  • Needlestick injuries
  • Exposure to pathogens, chemicals and other biological hazards
  • Exposure to radioactive materials and X-rays
  • Back injuries caused by lifting patients
  • Stress injuries caused by other repetitive motions
  • Injuries caused by violent patients
  • Slip-and-falls due to wet or unclean floors

Manufacturing Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries

Manufacturing workers also experience a high rate of work-related injury. Common manufacturing-related injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Injuries to the arms and shoulders due to overexertion and repetitive movement
  • Back and neck injuries caused by lifting
  • Slips on wet production floors, falls from ladders, scaffolding or machinery
  • Head injuries caused by falling debris
  • Illness caused by exposure to toxic materials

Employers often put the needs of the business over the safety of their workers. Employees are often encouraged to cut corners and ignore safety regulations in an effort to increase production. Removing safety levers, failing to provide or use safety equipment, and failing to repair defective machinery all pose serious risks to workers.
