The cost of a warehouse injury can add up fast in the form of medical bills and lost income while you are unable to work.  Make sure you are aware of your rights in these circumstances and get the legal help you need so you and your family are protected.

Warehouse Worker Injuries Are Becoming More Common

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 2 million people work in warehouses across the country.  With the ever-increasing popularity of online shopping, fulfillment warehouses require a huge labor force to keep up with demand.  Texas has attracted many big name national and international companies who need large warehouses and thousands of workers in these locations.  The work environment is often fast-paced with large numbers of objects being moved swiftly from place to place by handtrucks, pallet jacks, complex machinery, forklifts, freight trucks, trains, etc.  With the increase of jobs in this highspeed industry, workplace injuries have become an increasing problem.

Your Right to Compensation

Warehouse workers, like any other worker, have rights under Texas labor laws when it comes to on-the-job injuries.  You will need compensation for all medical expenses and the time that you are unable to work.  Unfortunately, obtaining this compensation can be a complicated process and you may initially be denied the benefits you should justly receive. Many of these companies also choose not to carry workers’ compensation insurance in Texas.  Our attorneys have helped clients get compensation for warehouse incidents including the following:

  • Hit by forklift
  • Loading dock accidents
  • Struck by falling objects
  • Injured by machinery
  • Falls
  • Unsafe working conditions
  • Machine or equipment malfunctions
  • Lifting injuries
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Over exertion
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Exposure to hazardous materials
