Manufacturing and industrial workers are often exposed to hazardous materials, dangerous conditions and heavy equipment as part of their job description. This type of environment combined with strenuous activity makes manufacturing accidents more likely. When manufacturing or industrial workers are injured, they are often unable to do their job for a short or prolonged period of time. Fortunately, workers’ compensation benefits are available to these kinds of workers. If you or someone you know has been injured in a manufacturing accident in North Carolina, the attorneys at Titsworth Law Offices, P.A., want to help you recover.
