Factories provide manufacturing jobs in Los Angeles communities, steady paychecks for families, and economic opportunity for growth. Factories, however, are usually full of heavy duty machinery, conveyor belts, lots of moving parts, distracting noise, and people moving about, all of which make factories hotbeds for industrial injuries.

Factory injuries can often be severe and catastrophic, including mangled limbs, amputations, severe fractures, paralysis, brain injuries, and even death.

Some common causes of a work injury include:

  • Amputation injuries of fingers, hand, toes, foot, arms or legs
  • Entanglement of clothing, hair, body parts in machinery
  • Vehicle injuries (forklifts, loaders, trucks, etc.)
  • Lifting injuries
  • Trap injuries
  • Crush injuries when things fall
  • Slipping and falling
  • Tripping and falling
  • Electrocution
  • Burns
  • Chemicals
  • Repetitive movement injuries

Workplace injuries are often preventable with proper safeguards and training. Unfortunately, many companies and corporations cut corners to try to save a buck, putting the people that make them successful in harms way. Putting profit before safety is unconscionable and wrongdoing companies must be held responsible. Even in instances when your company follows every safety rule and procedure to a tee, a faulty or defective product within the factory can cause your injury, necessitating a third party product liability lawsuit to hold them accountable.
