Manufacturing Leg Injury Accidents
Injuries in the workplace are potentially devastating on a number of different accounts. They can demoralize a company’s workforce, and adversely affect an injured worker’s physical, emotional, and financial health. Normally such injuries would qualify one for benefits under an employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, but in cases of extreme negligence, there may be grounds instead for pursuing a legal action. If successful, a legal action has the potential to recover more financial compensation for your injuries and other damages that are not covered by workers’ compensation.
An injury to your legs can keep you out of work or on light duty for an extended period of time, and in cases of severe damage it may compromise your earning capacity for the rest of your life.

The nature and severity of leg injuries can vary greatly, but it is important that you seek a proper medical diagnosis and care for any workplace injury. Manufacturing work is physically intensive and can subject your legs to traumatic stresses if you are not given the appropriate equipment, training, or assistance. Fractures of the tibia, fibula, patella, and bones of the ankles or feet are not uncommon. Additionally, muscle and tendon damage can require extensive rest and physical therapy to heal properly.
Depending upon the circumstances of your accident, you may be eligible for damages allotted for:
- Medical bills
- Transportation to and from appointments
- Lost wages
- Reduced future earning capacity
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
