North Texas Warehouse Accidents & Injuries

Warehouse Accidents & Injuries

Safety is a major issue in warehouses, factories, and other industrial work settings. Forklifts, heavy machinery, and trucks are potentially dangerous in any situation but pose even more risk to employees who work with them every day. Numerous Texas workers are involved in warehouse accidents every year, often due to lack of safety training or supervision. Sadly, many warehouse accidents cause life-altering injuries including permanent disability.

When employer negligence is to blame for a warehouse accident, the injured employee is entitled to seek compensation for his or her injuries, medical bills, and other injury-related losses through a warehouse accident lawsuit. Before proceeding with a lawsuit, however, it is important to have an experienced Dallas warehouse accident lawyer on your side to represent your best interests and protect your legal rights.


Warehouse Accidents and Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation may cover some warehouse accidents; however, because Texas does not require private employers to subscribe to workers’ compensation insurance, many employers do not have this coverage. Additionally, workers’ compensation benefits may be insufficient to cover all of the medical bills, lost wages, and future earning capacity after a debilitating work injury accident. In many cases, a lawsuit is necessary in order to recoup damages for warehouse injuries.


Potential Risks That Lead to Warehouse Accidents

Warehouse accident victims may sustain catastrophic injuries including loss of limbs, crushed limbs, brain and spinal cord injuries, and internal organ injuries. Hazards that may contribute to warehouse accidents include:

  • Forklift accidents
  • Heavy equipment accidents
  • Collapsing scaffolding
  • Falling merchandise or other objects
  • Slips and trips on slick or wet surfaces
  • Falls from ladders or other heights
  • Truck accidents
  • Improper or defective safety equipment
  • Insufficient employee safety training
  • Defective machinery
  • OSHA violations
