Work Accidents Q & A

What are work accidents?

Work accidents are unexpected injuries that occur on the job. Anyone can experience a work accident, even if your career isn’t physically demanding and your workplace seems safe. Most work accidents occur during normal, everyday activities.

Certain jobs carry a higher risk for accidents, including nursing assistants, laborers and material movers, truck drivers, and construction workers.

What are the most common work accidents?

There are many different work-related injuries, but more than 84% of work accidents are the result of three main causes:

Overexertion and bodily reaction

Overexertion and bodily reaction accidents are the leading cause of workplace injuries. These include injuries from exerting excessive physical effort, such as carrying a heavy object, and those due to stress or strain from repetitive motions like painting.

Slips, trips, and falls

Slipping or tripping can cause injuries, even if you catch yourself before you fall. A falling injury can occur on the same level, such as when you trip and fall on the floor or from a height, such as a ladder or scaffolding.

Contact with objects and equipment

Contact with objects and equipment can cause injuries in various ways, such as being struck by a moving or falling object, bumping into equipment, getting squeezed between objects, and sustaining an injury from vibration.

How are work accidents diagnosed and treated?

The Wellness and Surgery team diagnoses and treats various injuries from work accidents, including neck pain, back pain, hip pain, sprains, and strains. 

First, they ask how the accident occurred and what symptoms you’re experiencing. They perform a physical exam and may take diagnostic tests. Their state-of-the-art facility boasts on-site ultrasound testing to help them determine the cause of your pain and create an individualized treatment plan.

The Wellness and Surgery team offers a wide range of pain management treatments and medications for work accidents and injuries and can help find the right solution for you.

Does insurance cover medical care for work accidents?

Wellness and Surgery accepts many types of insurance, including Geico and Allstate, to cover work accidents. You can always call the office to ask if they accept your insurance.
