Pulp and paper mills are major contributors to the economy in Alabama, employing thousands of workers in the state. These mills are known for their large machinery and equipment used in the production process, which can be dangerous if not properly maintained or operated. Unfortunately, accidents and injuries can and do happen at pulp and paper mills, leaving workers with serious injuries and medical bills.
If you or a loved one has been injured while working at a pulp and paper mill, it’s important to seek legal help as soon as possible. The experienced attorneys at Morris, Andrews, Talmadge & Driggers, LLC can help you pursue compensation for your injuries and losses.
Common Pulp and Paper Machine Injuries
Working with large and complex machinery is inherently dangerous, and workers at pulp and paper mills are at risk of suffering serious injuries. Some of the most common injuries associated with pulp and paper machinery include:
- Crush injuries
- Fractures and broken bones
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Eye injuries
These injuries can be life-changing and often require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. They can also lead to lost wages and diminished earning capacity, as well as pain and suffering.
Pursuing Compensation for Pulp and Paper Machine Injuries
If you’ve been injured while working at a pulp and paper mill, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses. In Alabama, workers’ compensation insurance provides benefits to employees who are injured on the job. However, workers’ compensation benefits may not be sufficient to cover all of your expenses, and in some cases, may not be available at all.
In addition to workers’ compensation, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against a third-party, such as a manufacturer or supplier of defective machinery. Our attorneys can help you explore all of your options and pursue the maximum compensation available for your injuries and losses.
