Workers’ Comp Claims for Plant & Factory Workers
Working in a factory or manufacturing plant can place you in a fast-moving workplace with heavy equipment being used routinely.

Injuries Suffered by Factory Workers
In a factory with heavy equipment and crowded workspaces, accidents can happen in a variety of ways. No matter what happened and what sort of injury you have suffered, we can help you prepare and work through your workers’ compensation claim.
Injuries and accidents that may occur in a factory setting include:
- Crushed between or by heavy objects
- Hit by falling objects
- Falls from a height
- Burn injuries
- Chemical exposure injuries
- Electrocution injuries
Liability in a Factory Accident
If you are filing for workers’ compensation as an injured factory worker, then you should know that liability will likely not play a role in your workers’ compensation claim. You should be guaranteed your benefits, no matter who caused your accident. In other words, you can admit to making a mistake that caused your own injury and still be granted workers’ compensation benefits without any detriment.
Liability only becomes an important factor in a workers’ compensation claim when foul play is suspected. If the responding insurance company has any reason to believe you intentionally caused your injury to try to get out of work, then an investigation into liability may occur. It could end with you being denied workers’ comp benefits. Let our Illinois factory worker accident attorneys help you establish the cause of your accident and why you deserve benefits.
You may be able to receive the following benefits for your factory workers’ comp claim:
- Coverage of all necessary medical care
- 2/3 of your regular weekly wages
- Reimbursement for other necessary expenses, like travel costs
