Bethlehem Meat Packing Plant Injury Lawyer
Helping Injured Clients in the ABE Area
The many meat packing and processing plants in the Lehigh Valley are the source of numerous workers' compensation cases. Injuries to workers in meat packing plants are common, and are exacerbated by conditions in the plants. Situations such as blood on the floors, cold temperatures, the speed of the line, defective or poorly maintained equipment, and the sheer weight of the animal carcasses make meat packing plants especially dangerous to workers.

Contact Our Law Firm for Information About Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Law
At Vellner Law, our work injury attorney handles cases involving on-the-job injuries to employees of meat packing plants. Pennsylvania statutes provide payment to workers who were injured on the job and pays injured employees for lost income, medical bills and the cost of transportation to visit a doctor or hospital. You may receive additional compensation for a lost limb or loss of use of an extremity.
Seeking All Sources of Payment for Injured Workers
In addition to helping workers file claims and appeal negative decisions, our lawyer evaluates each case to identify other sources of compensation. If your injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, such as a delivery driver, buyer, outside maintenance contractor or others who are not your employer or a co-worker, we can seek additional compensation through a third party personal injury lawsuit.
Examples of Meat Processing Injuries
Meat packing plant workers suffer on-the-job injuries such as:
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Occupational illnesses from exposure to blood and bacteria
If you suffer an injury or illness while working in a meat packing plant, seek treatment right away, even if you think the injury is minor. It is important to have medical records to build a strong case for compensation for work illness or injury.
