Were You Injured In A Manufacturing Or Warehouse Incident?

The thousands of men and women in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota who work in manufacturing, construction, warehouses and numerous other trades that require the operation of heavy machinery live with the daily risk of suffering a work-related injury. Whether repeatedly lifting heavy objects, or operating forklifts, pallet jacks and other tools of the trade, hardworking men and women deserve to know their rights after sustaining a workplace injury.

At Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC, we have recovered more than $70 million since 2001 on behalf of our clients. Over 100 years of experience and a long-standing commitment to the people in our community, we understand the challenges facing working individuals and families in western Wisconsin. That is why we dedicate our practice to educating and protecting injured workers throughout the region through personal injury, workers' compensation and Social Security Disability claims.

Wisconsin And Minnesota Businesses Have A Duty To Care

For individuals working in potentially dangerous environments like machine shops, warehouses and construction sites, there is an acceptance of the risks that come with the job. However, employers and employees have a responsibility to promote safe working conditions to mitigate the possibility of injury.

If you have been injured on the job, it may be in your best interests to contact an attorney to discuss the circumstances of your accident to ensure your employer complies with workers' comp laws. Some responsibilities most employers must adhere to include:

  • Reporting injuries to the appropriate workers' comp office
  • Providing a report of all workplace accidents that result in significant injury
  • Providing medical attention to injured workers — including immediate assistance for on-site injuries as well as resources for treatment after stabilization
  • Notifying employees of the employer's compliance with workers' comp laws

Protect Your Rights After A Warehouse Accident

Workers' comp covers a broad range of incidents and resulting injuries. In some cases, injuries may be temporary, and in others, long-term or even permanent. At Fitzpatrick, Skemp & Associates, LLC, we can help you understand your options for partial, total, temporary and permanent disability. Depending on your condition, you may be entitled to benefits that provide for you and your family while you recover. If you are unable to return to work, we can help you pursue full benefits that will provide for you and your family.

If you suffered an injury while on the job, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits to aid in your recovery.
