Treatment Options for Injuries Sustained While At The Work Place
Serious workplace injuries are more common than you actually think. Statistics show that every year millions of workers in the United States suffer serious work-related injuries. Most of the injuries are random incidents that can happen to anyone at any time. Furthermore, the risk of these injuries can differ from one working field to another because it depends on the industry, as well as the company. For example, a cubicle worker in an IT firm is going to face different risks than an assembly line worker in an auto manufacturing plant. However, one thing is common; the employee is responsible for themselves when it comes to taking caution during their job performance, while the employer is obligated to ensure a safe work environment.
What are the most common work-related injuries?
Some of the most common work injuries are repetitive motion injuries, machine entanglement, vehicle accidents, falling object injuries, falling from height injuries, slipping/tripping, and overexertion injuries, to name a few. Unfortunately, many doctors don’t treat workers compensation claims because they need a detailed understanding of the laws and special documentation of the care procedures. Luckily, however, that’s not the case with us; we’re experts in documentation and treatment of workers compensation claims.
