Severely Injured While Working An Assembly Line?
Manufacturing plants are a familiar sight across Georgia, offering thousands of workers positions on an assembly line. Two major employers in Augusta are golf cart manufacturers E-Z-GO and Club Car. Working on an assembly line may not immediately strike you as a dangerous job, but serious injuries can and often do occur.
At The Law Office of Bryan S. Hawkins, we treat you with compassion while taking an aggressive approach to your workers’ compensation claim. Before founding this firm, Bryan Hawkins worked for years as an insurance defense lawyer. Watching hardworking individuals struggle to get the benefits they need drove him away from workers’ compensation defense, but he took his experience with him. When your lawyer has the other team’s playbook, you can anticipate challenges instead of react to them.
Don’t Think Serious Injuries Occur On Assembly Lines? Think Again.
Manufacturing plants are places where a wide range of injuries are common, even for assembly line workers. Some common assembly line injuries include:
- Repetitive motion injuries: Performing the same motions over and over again for months or even years can cause significant strain and permanent damage on your joints and muscles.
- Heavy lifting injuries: Those who work in a manufacturing plant are often required to lift heavy boxes or objects that can cause new back injuries or aggravate pre-existing conditions.
- Traumatic injuries: Accidents caused by outdated machines, disorganization, lack of adequate safety gear or the failure to warn can cause serious and immediate injuries.
- Exposure injuries: Assembly line workers may be exposed to fumes or toxic chemicals that can lead to pulmonary disease or other respiratory issues.
