Workers’ Compensation for Manufacturing Industry Workers
In the United States, the manufacturing industry represents 15% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Whether you work for a major manufacturing company or a small business in the manufacturing sector, employees face risks on a daily basis. From stress injuries to those caused by heavy machinery, everyday tasks can put you in danger. If you work in the manufacturing industry and have been injured on the job or can no longer work as a result of an injury, workers’ compensation can help cover the costs of your medical bills.
The manufacturing industry can include textile mills, leather and allied product manufacturing, the manufacture of rubber or plastic, and even electronic product manufacturers. If you work in one of these industries and have been injured on the job, contact Martin Law today to obtain workers’ compensation.
