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:
- Trips/slips and falls;
- Falling objects;
- A fall from a scaffold;
- Cuts and lacerations;
- Heavy machinery accident;
- Company vehicle accidents.
Any physical or mental work-related issue or injury you suffer from could be considered for workers’ compensation.
After you have suffered a workplace injury, it is crucial to seek medical attention, even if you do not feel that you have seriously been injured. A doctor’s report immediately following your injury is the important first step in your successful claim for compensation benefits. It is essential that you see a doctor that is certified by New York State to treat Workers’ Compensation patients.

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, soft tissue and upper spine injury that causes pain in your neck and upper body. Other common automobile injuries include:
- Muscle strains;
- Low back injuries;
- Injured shoulders;
- Injured knees;
- Internal organ injuries;
- Concussions and head trauma;
Can I Have Delayed Symptoms After an Auto Accident?
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 Accidents 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 Orthopedic Pain Management NYC orders an X-ray right away to check for fractures. Once your doctor diagnoses the type and severity of your injury, they develop a treatment plan.
For soft tissue injuries, such as whiplash, muscle strains, and spinal misalignment, your treatment plan may include a combination of medications, rest, and physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
To relieve acute or ongoing pain, your doctor at Orthopedic Pain Management NYC may recommend an advanced interventional treatment such as nerve block, joint injections, or an epidural steroid injection.
