Carpet mills have a bad reputation for injuries, going back to the days when workers did much of the loading and sorting of material. Even in modern plants that are more automated, carpet mill workers are still exposed to a variety of dangers.
At Tillman & Associates in Atlanta, our lawyers help injured carpet mill workers obtain the benefits they are due from workers’ compensation. We handle cases throughout Georgia’s carpet and flooring industry, including Shaw Industries, Mohawk Industries, Beaulieu of America, Interface, Milliken, J&J Industries and Collins & Aikman Floorcoverings. If you have been injured at any manufacturing plant in Georgia, please call 404-315-0000 or 800-743-3994 toll free for a free initial consultation.
A Dangerous Industry
The carpet and flooring industry employs more than 45,000 people in Georgia. While the industry is much safer than it used to be, workers still suffer injuries, including:
- Neck, back and wrist injuries
- Deafness from loud equipment
- Chronic illnesses from breathing toxic chemicals
- Injuries from forklift truck accidents
- Crush injuries from heavy rolls of carpet
- Machinery injuries
Georgia workers’ compensation is a large, complex body of law. If you have never had to deal with the process of applying for workers’ compensation before, that inexperience can be costly. Our lawyers are here to protect your interests. We also represent families of workers who die in job-related accidents.
