Accidents & Injuries in Auto Manufacturing Plants
Automotive and tire plants are often dangerous work environments. Like most manufacturing facilities, these plants are full of large and fast-moving equipment. Many of the jobs are physically challenging and involve lifting or moving heavy parts. This can lead to very seriously injuries. Auto manufacturing and tire companies, like all employers, have a responsibility to provide a safe work environment for their workers. When a worker is hurt on-the-job, that worker is usually eligible for benefits through the workers’ comp system.

One of the biggest misconceptions about workers’ compensation (often perpetuated by employers and management) is that certain injuries do not qualify for workers’ comp. Injuries where the workers’ own action contributed to the injury are often denied. The truth is, an employee injured at work will usually be eligible for work comp, regardless of who is at fault.
