We Understand The Severity Of Warehouse Accidents

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), more than 145,000 people work in more than 7,000 warehouses in the U.S. “The fatal injury rate for the warehousing industry is higher than the national average for all industries.” (Source: OSHA website.) This federal agency has identified common hazards to warehouse workers as follows:

  • Docks: Forklifts run off docks; products fall on employees; equipment strikes people
  • Forklift accidents injure 95,000 people each year. Turnover accidents are common.
  • Materials storage: Stacked loads of merchandise and other materials often fall and injure workers.
  • Manual lifting and handling: Heavy loads, improper lifting and overexertion sometimes result in back injuries. Repetitive motion injuries sometimes occur.
  • Spills of hazardous materials: Chemical exposure may be an issue.
  • Battery charging stations are sometimes the site of fires and explosions.
  • Inadequate fire safety precautions may result in burn injuries or smoke inhalation injuries.
  • Inadequate personal protective equipment may contribute to injuries.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
