Throughout Minnesota, workers in the meat and food packing industry who have been injured on the job turn to Midwest Disability, in Minneapolis.

Types Of Meat And Food Packing Industry Accidents
The statistics show that workers in the meat packing industry have the most dangerous job in the country. The injury rate is simply unacceptable. Many workers make hundreds, perhaps thousands, of knife cuts every day. Laceration injuries are common. All or parts of fingers may be lost on the line as workers are pushed to work faster and faster. This is only one of the dangers faced by workers in this industry. Many injuries result simply from repetitive motions — doing the same thing over and over — wearing down backs, shoulders, wrists and more. Our injury lawyers in Minnesota handle claims involving:
- Laceration accidents
- Conveyor belt injuries
- Lifting injuries
- Falling accidents
- Falling objects
- Chemical inhalation injuries
Knowing the dangers they face, many workers in the meat and food packing industry purchase group or individual long-term disability policies. While these policies are designed to provide financial support after a disabling injury, the unfortunate reality is that insurance companies often resist. Our attorneys are here to stand up to insurance companies and make them fulfill their promises.
