Advocating For Assembly And Manufacturing Workers

Assembly line and warehouse workers must typically engage in repetitive tasks and lift heavy objects — activities that can eventually lead to chronic pain and other disabling injuries. If you work a production line and are having difficulty doing your job — or can no longer work at all — you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

To qualify, your injury must be work-related and must have occurred during the course of your employment. At Cutler & Silverglade, our attorneys take the time to learn more about the circumstances that led to your injury and work to tailor our representation to meet your unique needs and goals.

Common Assembly And Production Injuries

Whether you were involved in the early stages of production, or were involved in putting the final finishes on a product, you probably engage in repetitive work that can lead to hand injuries, wrist injuries and other cumulative trauma complications. Examples of common assembly line injuries include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (hand and wrist)
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome (elbow)
  • Tendonitis
  • Lower back injuries
  • Lumbar spine injuries

Additionally, press operators often engage in heavy lifting that can result in painful hip, knee and back injuries that can prevent them from working. There are also risks of falling, injuring yourself with power tools or faulty equipment, as well as other dangers associated with unsafe working conditions. Regardless of your injury, we are prepared to fight on your behalf and get you the workers' compensation benefits to which you are entitled.
