New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyers: Manufacturing and Warehouse Accidents


In early December, 2013, a New Jersey warehouse worker at a new Amazon warehouse in Avenel, was killed when a piece of heavy equipment fell and crushed him, reported the United States Department of Labor. Evidently, the man who died was “caught in between and (then) crushed by equipment,” noted Leni Uddyback-Fortson, a Department of Labor Office of Public Affairs regional director. OSHA is also investigating the accident that occurred on December 4.

Most of us don’t stop to think how dangerous working in a warehouse or a manufacturing facility can be. The manufacturing industry is one of the largest workforces in our nation, and it includes those in the tobacco and beverages, food, wood products, furniture, primary metals, transportation equipment, and fabricated metal products sectors.

Historically, serious tragedies have occurred in the manufacturing industry, including the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire that killed 146 people in 1911, warehouse explosions, chemical leaks, and more.

Common types of warehouse and manufacturing accidents include:


  • Crushed fingers or other body parts

  • Broken bones

  • Soft tissue injury

  • Spinal and neck injury

  • Strains and sprains

  • Amputations

  • Nerve damage from falling boxes and other falling objects

  • Malfunctioning or faulty equipment

  • Getting caught in a roller or conveyor-type machine or at a pinch point


If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on the job, workers compensation can pay for your medical treatment and lost wages. You must report the injury to your employer in order to get the workers compensation claim process started. At Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, you will find an experienced workers compensation attorney. Visit our website at:
