Factory and warehouse jobs can pay well and labor intensive, but they also come with a high risk of injury. The types of injuries sustained in this type of field can be more serious than those in a more sedentary job. If you were injured on the job while working in a factory or warehouse, you are entitled to compensation.

Types of Injuries in the Workplace
Warehouse and factory workers can face different types of workplace accidents than employees who sit in cubicles. Some of the more common of types in this setting are:
- Back injuries from lifting heavy items
- Musculoskeletal disorders such as arthritis which can limit mobility and cause muscle and joint pain
- Knee and shoulder injuries
- Broken bones from slip and fall accidents or being hit by falling objects
These injuries can be caused by actions required by the job that cause stress on your muscles and tendons. Strained muscles can be more complicated to claim workers’ compensation for than a broken bone, because it’s not as simple to prove an injury. These claims can be difficult, especially if you received you warehouse/factory job through a temp. agency. Your employer may consider you independent from the company and refuse to file your claim. Do not get discouraged – this doesn’t mean you are not entitled to compensation. In a situation like this, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney fighting for you.
