How Orthopedic Injuries Can Affect Your Job
2
According to data published by the United States
Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2016, workers
employed in the fields of maintenance,
construction, or natural resources have some of
the highest levels of absence from work due to
injury. However, work-related orthopedic injuries
could apply to all types of workers, ranging from
agricultural laborers to office staff working a
nine-to-five desk job. Orthopedic injuries may
include repetitive motion injuries, damaged
joints, ligaments or tendons, or even a bone
fracture.

Causes Of Work-related Orthopedic Injuries
4
Temporary Or Partial Disability Due To Orthopedic
Injuries
If you are too hurt to perform your job duties,
you may be eligible to file for temporary
disability while you recover from your injuries.
You could also be declared partially disabled and
be assigned lighter-duty tasks to perform at work
until your condition improves or even
permanently.
5
Some injured workers will find themselves unable
to go back to their old job duties, and their
employer may assign them to a new set of job
duties that are compatible with the disability
caused by their injuries. However, some employers
may try to pressure you into returning to work
early or returning to your old job duties before
you are physically readyand they could be held
liable for doing so.
6
Be Careful When You Return To Work
When you return to work after sustaining an
orthopedic injury, be careful and listen to your
body. If one of your job duties calls for
physical exertion that you dont currently feel
capable of, dont push yourselfit could lead to
worsening your existing injury or creating a new
one.

Have You Experienced An Orthopedic Injury While
At Work?
If you have suffered an orthopedic injury while
on the job, you may want to explore your legal
rights. Depending on the extent of the injury and
the amount of work you have had to miss due to
the injuries you sustained. If your employer
refuses to alter your job duties to better suit
your post-injury abilities, you may want to
contact Los Angeles orthopedic injury attorneys
to discuss possible legal action. The legal
experts at Kropach and Kropach can help you find
