Modesto Warehouse Injury Lawyers
Helping Injured Warehouse Workers Seek Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Warehouse workers are some of the most at-risk employees when it comes to on-the-job injuries and occupational illnesses. In January of 2020, theFresno Bee reported that the rate of serious warehouse injuries at Amazon’s Fresno facility was more than double the state’s average and almost three times as high as the national average in 2018 at a rate of about 12 injuries per 100 workers. And this is just one example; warehouse workers throughout California and across the United States suffer countless debilitating injuries on the job every year.
If you were injured while working in a warehouse, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation under California state law, as long as you were classified by your employer as an “employee.” Our firm can help you file your workers’ compensation claim, appeal a denied claim, or navigate any workers’ compensation-related matter. With over 30 years of legal experience, our Modesto warehouse injury attorneys are ready to fight for the maximum benefits you are owed. Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC serves clients in Modesto, Sacramento, Stockton, and throughout the Central Valley.

Common Warehouse Injuries
Due to the nature of most warehouse jobs, workers face a number of significant risks every day. Warehouse workers are frequently required to lift and move heavy objects, operate forklifts and other heavy machinery, work with dangerous equipment and tools, and complete repetitive tasks. As a result, they are often exposed to numerous hazards that can—and do—cause serious harm.
Some of the most common warehouse injuries involve:
- Slip and falls
- Falling from heights/scaffolding
- Being struck by falling objects
- Crush accidents
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Forklift crashes
- Defective equipment or tools
- Exposure to harmful substances
- Toxic exposure
- Machine entanglement
- Loading dock accidents
- Repetitive motion injuries
Warehouse workers often suffer severe, catastrophic injuries, such as accidental amputation, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and paralysis. They may also suffer serious muscle strains, occupational illnesses, and debilitating conditions brought on by repetitive work.
Your Right to Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Like any other employee in California, warehouse workers are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits when they suffer on-the-job injuries or job-related illnesses. Workers’ compensation is meant to cover all medical expenses associated with your injuries, as well as replace wages while you are out of work. If your injuries are so severe, they leave you permanently disabled, you may be able to recover permanent disability benefits.
