Work-related Injuries Q & A

What are work injuries?

Work injuries could be any damage that happens to you while performing your job. Common examples include:

  • Crush injuries
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Strains (muscle and tendon injuries)
  • Sprains (ligament injuries)
  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome

Orthopedic Urgent Care Aventura specializes in treating back and neck, foot and ankle, knee and hip, hand and wrist, and shoulder and elbow work injuries.

Is it important to see a doctor for work injuries? 

If you suffer any injury at work, you must report it to your supervisor and seek medical attention, even if the problem seems minor.

This procedure is required to claim workers’ compensation, which provides cash and medical benefits for people injured during their employment if they can’t work.

You can claim workers’ comp regardless of who’s to blame for the injury. Over 90% of workers’ compensation claims are musculoskeletal, requiring specialty orthopedic care.

Orthopedic Urgent Care Aventura provides the support you need to get back on your feet and return to work quickly. The team’s experts specialize in diagnosing and treating work injuries and are fully versed in the Florida workers’ comp rules and regulations.
