Common Boeing Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can happen in many ways. Boeing employees can risk workplace injuries from lifting, falling, and operating machinery. Some people think injuries are sudden events. But that’s not always true. Most workplace injuries result from workers performing repetitive motions, such as pushing, pulling, and standing for long periods.

Here are the most common Boeing workplace injuries:

  • Amputations
  • Back injuries
  • Bone Breaks and Fractures
  • Chemical Burns
  • Crush Injuries
  • Electrical Burns
  • Eye Injuries
  • Hernias and Lifting-Related Injuries
  • Overexertion-Related Injuries
  • Repetitive Motion Injuries
  • Slip-and-Fall Injuries

1. Get Medical Attention ASAP

Whether your injuries happened suddenly or resulted from repetitive motions, seek medical attention after noticing them. Plus, attending medical check-ups and other appointments documents the extent of your injuries. It can also help strengthen your claim.

2. Report Your Injury to Boeing

South Carolina requires hurt employees to report their injuries at most 90 days after the injury-causing incident took place. Completing this step requires knowing Boeing’s specific rules for reporting workplace injuries. While there are exceptions to this 90 day requirement, it is best to report it as quickly as possible.

3. Obtain Witness Statements

Witnesses see an event after it happens. Submitting a valid workers’ compensation claim does not require presenting witness statements. You can have a valid workers’ compensation claim without anyone witnessing your injury. But if it’s possible to get these statements, they can prove invaluable for your claim.

4. File Your Claim Timely

You must file a workers’ compensation claim in South Carolina within two years after your injuries. That said, exceptions to this rule exist. Consulting with an attorney is often helpful regardless of when your injury happened. That’s because attorneys can find out if statute of limitation-related exceptions exist.

5. Contact a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Sometimes, cases can appear simple. However, our experiences show that even seemingly simple cases can quickly get complicated. You’ll typically deal with the other party working to invalidate your claim at every turn. Fortunately, experienced attorneys can help negotiate on your behalf while assisting you in seeking workplace injury compensation.
