Each year, thousands of workers across the United States sustain injuries while on the job. Workplace accidents can include falls, transportation and equipment incidents, exposure, fires, explosions and electrocutions, among others. Along with other states, the Texas workforce is composed of sectors known for injuries, including laborers, construction, oil and gas extraction, maintenance, heavy equipment and trucking, farm workers, delivery personnel and even healthcare workers. In Texas, many employers carry Workers’ Compensation insurance to help pay healthcare costs for employees who incur a workplace injury. OrthoLoneStar has a dedicated team to support these Workers’ Compensation cases which can often be complicated and hard to navigate. In partnership with our providers, the Workers’ Compensation team is dedicated to helping employees effectively address their injuries so they can get back to work and everyday life as quickly as possible.
Orthopedics and Workers’ Compensation
Based on the accident, workplace injuries can include fractures, broken bones, sprains, strains, tears, and trauma that require evaluation and treatment by an Orthopedic specialist, Interventional Pain Management physician, a Physiatrist (doctor specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation) or an Occupational Medicine expert. OrthoLoneStar is made up of six distinct divisions with long histories supporting the communities they serve, and each of our divisions has providers who see Worker’s Compensation cases. For the convenience of Texas workers, our locations stretch across the state and offer Workers’ Compensation authorized care to patients from the Greater Austin area to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, Greater Houston and the Tyler/East Texas region.
Along with our physician specialists, we also have a dedicated and experienced Worker’s Compensation department that provides a comprehensive list of services, including new patient scheduling, surgery and imaging pre-authorizations.
