We Are Here To Help If You Were Injured In A Warehouse

Last updated on March 25, 2024

Warehouses are one of the most common locations of workplace injuries. If you were working in a New Jersey warehouse, suffered an injury and need help with a workers’ compensation claim, then you can come to Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, LLC. Since 1986, our workers’ compensation attorneys have stood up for the rights of injured workers in Ocean County and the surrounding metro area.

What To Know About Warehouse Accidents And Injuries

Although workplace injuries can happen anywhere, warehouses are particularly hazardous for workers. They contain large, hefty objects that often require heavy equipment to move. Workers moving in and out of the warehouse can track in mud or snow, making the ground slippery. Many supervisors pressure employees to work faster than is safe to do. Some of the most common causes of injuries in warehouses are:

  • Pulling and lifting things
  • Pushing things
  • Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
  • Falling objects
  • Scaffolding injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Heavy machinery injuries

These accidents can cause a range of severe injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Broken bones
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Neck injuries
  • Limb amputations

After you file your claim, do not feel surprised if your employer’s insurer denies it. Many valid workers’ comp claims receive denials, as insurance companies want to avoid paying benefits. You will need experienced, assertive workers’ compensation attorneys like ours to fight for your you in an appeal.

Do You Also Have A Warehouse Personal Injury Claim?

Some workplace injuries involve a third party that is not the employer. In cases like these, you may have the opportunity to seek additional compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Our workers’ compensation lawyers are committed to recovering every bit of compensation available to you, including litigating a personal injury claim if necessary. In total, they have recovered more than $75 million for our clients.
