Most Common Industrial Arm Injuries
- The most common arm injuries involve:
- Fractured bones
- Broken bones
- Pinched nerves
- Dislocated joints
- Rotator cuff tendonitis
Some injuries can heal faster than the others, but you will still be unable to perform your regular work duties while healing. You may even required surgery, or multiple surgeries to be able to use your arm again (with broken bones or severed tendons, one may undergo multiple construction surgeries). If you are working in construction, landscaping or manufacturing injury, due to the stress put on your arms as a result of repeating the same actions over and over again, you are most likely going to receive an injury.
The best way to avoid getting injured is to take a break every time you feel pressure on one or both of your arms. Massage your arms, and don’t put too much pressure on them without taking a proper break. This is especially important if you are performing the same action over and over again – the more you do it, the closer you are to getting injured.
How Much Money Will I Receive If I Am Unable To Work Due To My Arm Injury?
Workers compensation for an arm injury usually entitles the injured individual to financial compensation for lost wages (normally they are 66% or 2/3 of the lost wages, subject to state maximum), as well as financial compensation for the lost income. An injured individual will be put on one of several programs which will provide him with a weekly or monthly check. He will also receive fully paid medical attention, including surgeries, physiotherapies, treatments, prescription drugs, medication, transfer to and from the doctor (if the doctor’s office is more than 5 miles away), and fully paid out-of-pocket expenses.
