Frequent Workplace Injuries at UPS Distribution Centers

Here are the most common UPS distribution center workplace injuries:

  • Overexertion
  • Equipment-Related Accidents
  • Repetitive Motion Injuries
  • Slips, Trips, and Falls
  • Hernias
  • Contact With Hazardous Materials

Seek Medical Attention

Receiving medical care lets you treat your injuries while having documentation that’s helpful for your workers’ compensation claim.

Report Your Injury to UPS

South Carolina requires injured workers to report what happened to an employer. You have 90 days from when your injury took place to report it. There are exceptions to the 90 day reporting requirement so you should still consult with an experienced South Carolina workers’ compensation attorney if you have not reported your injury within 90 days of it occurring.

Get Witness Statements

Witness statements from people who saw your accident could help strengthen the validity of your claim. Witnesses are not required to have a valid workers’ compensation claim but they can be helpful if UPS denied your claim.

File Your Claim

South Carolina allows injured workers to file workers’ compensation claims within two years of their injuries.

Seek Out Lawyers for Work Injuries

Even seemingly simple cases can be deceiving. Legal representation puts attorneys on your side, ready to stand up against the other party.
