Sudden, Severe Bone Injuries Affect A Multitude of Workers
In 2017, bone fractures accounted for 3.8 percent of all reported work-related injuries. Bone fractures often occur in sudden, unexpected accidents on the job and affect certain industries more than others, including trade, transportation, warehousing, construction, and manufacturing.
Proper recovery from a bone injury is incredibly important, as failure to get the right care and rehabilitation can lead to long-term health issues, including arthritis, osteoporosis and chronic, widespread pain. Your best chance at a full recovery is to get medical help as soon as possible and to follow your doctor’s orders throughout treatment and rehabilitation.
If you are worried about how to pay for your medical care after an on-the-job accident, know there may be help for you through Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation laws.
