Workers in factory and industrial jobs are exposed to risks every day. Dangerous machinery, chemicals, faulty safety equipment, lack of training — these are just a few of the dangers workers face. When an on-the-job injury occurs, workers can file for workers’ compensation benefits.
Many workers find that they need an attorney’s help to get the workers’ comp benefits they deserve. At the Law Office of Stephen J. Dennis, we represent Rhode Island workers in workers’ comp and third-party negligence cases.
Protecting Industrial Workers
We represent people injured by light factory and industrial work in places such as:
- Shipbuilding Factories
- Food Processing Plants
- Utility Companies
- Automotive Assembly and Garages
- Scrap Metal Recycling Plants
- Garbage, Landfills and Recycling Facilities
- And more…
Injuries in these environments can be caused by defective machinery, forklift accidents, electrical accidents, fires, explosions, falling objects, slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents, toxic exposure and lack of safety procedures. If a negligent third party was responsible for the accident, you may be able to collect workers’ compensation benefits and additional damages. We can file a separate personal injury claim for additional damages, including compensation for pain and suffering.
Some of the most common injuries suffered by industrial and factory workers include broken bones, back injuries, repetitive stress injuries, head injuries, burns, electric shock, amputations and occupational diseases.
