Workers’ Compensation and Automobile Accidents Q & A

What are workers’ compensation injuries?

Workers’ compensation injuries include any injury that happens while you're on the job or at work. The most common workers’ comp injuries and issues include:

  • Overexertion/fatigue
  • Trips/slips and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Ladder falls
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Machinery malfunctions
  • Company vehicle accidents

Any physical or mental work-related issue or injury you suffer from could be considered for workers’ compensation.

Why am I in pain after a car accident?

Motor vehicle accidents are traumatic for your body. You get whipped around or pushed from side to side, which can lead to all kinds of bone and soft tissue damage.

One of the most common car accident injuries is whiplash, a soft tissue and upper spine injury that causes pain in your neck and upper body. Other common automobile injuries include:

  • Muscle strains
  • Tendon and ligament damage
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Concussions and head trauma

After an automobile accident, you might be in a state of shock or — at the very least — disoriented, which may cause you to underestimate your injuries. In many cases, severe pain might not set in until two to three days afterward. That's why seeking immediate medical attention is critical.

How are car accident and workers’ compensation injuries treated?

Whether you have a workers’ comp or automobile accident injury, chances are you’re going to be in pain. Usually, your doctor at Tuality Physicians orders an X-ray right away to check for fractures. If you have a broken bone, your treatment could start with casting or bracing.

For soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, muscle strains, and spinal misalignment, your treatment plan may include a combination of chiropractic and conventional treatment options.

In some cases, accidents lead to open wounds or abrasions. As a full-service urgent care clinic, the team at Tuality Physicians gets you stitched up and bandaged quickly, so your injury doesn’t become infected.

And, because the practice has five providers on-staff for car accident and workers’ compensation injuries, you can rest assured that you’ll receive a diagnosis and treatment plan quickly.
