Common bones broken in workplace accidents include bones in the arm, wrist, hip, ankle and collarbone. Treatment often involves setting the broken bone and immobilizing it with a cast or brace. In some cases, surgery may be needed to implant screws or pins. Recovering from a broken bone can take weeks or months to heal.
In the meantime, the injured worker is faced with medical bills and less income coming in. Workers' compensation benefits pay for all reasonable and necessary medical treatments and also provides partial wages while the worker is temporarily disabled. But the claims process can be confusing and frustrating. Employers and insurance companies often challenge benefits and pressure injured workers into returning to the job before they are fully healed.
