The Most Common Injuries BMW Employees Sustain

People who work for BMW can use a wide range of equipment and tools to complete their work. Unfortunately, the vehicle manufacturing process also carries risks of injuries related to falling, lifting something, or using job-specific machinery. Other, more common injuries in the workplace happen due to the continued stress of performing repetitive motions, including standing, pushing, and pulling.

Here are the most common BMW workplace injuries:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Amputations
  • Back Injuries
  • Bone Fractures
  • Chemical and Electrical Burns
  • Crush Injuries
  • Eye Injuries
  • Hernias

Receive Medical Treatment

The most vital factor after a workplace injury is your safety. Getting a post-accident check-up helps ensure you begin a treatment plan right away. It also provides proof of the extent of your injuries.

Report Your Injury to BMW

Next, report your injury to BMW. During this step, ensure you follow your employer’s specific instructions for reporting and documenting injuries. A BMW representative should direct you to one of their medical providers upon you reporting your injury.

Gather Witness Statements

Do you know or strongly feel that anyone else saw your injury-causing incident? Reach out to them. Having witnesses back up your claim can be extremely helpful throughout a personal injury case. While you do not need anyone to witness a work injury, they are helpful if BMW is denying your claim.

File Your Claim ASAP

According to South Carolina law, you have up to two years after a workplace injury to file a workers’ compensation claim. However, exceptions exist. That’s why it’s always best to consult with a lawyer regarding workplace injury claims.

Enlist the Help of an Attorney Handling Injuries in the Workplace

Even simple cases can become complicated. No matter how straightforward a BMW workplace injury case seems, employers, insurance providers, and the other side’s attorneys often work to invalidate an injured employee’s claim. When the other side denies your claims and disputes its details, you need Dayson Shalabi Burkett Law Firm, LLC, in your corner.
