Work Injury Q & A

What is a work-related injury?

A work-related injury is often due to accidents that occur during work hours and includes a multitude of potential issues, such as:

  • Hernias, deformities
  • Burns
  • Foot and/or hand trauma
  • Skin lacerations
  • Sprains, strains, and broken bones
  • Multiple other injuries

Work-related injuries can also be due to the damage sustained over long periods of time, such as abdominal hernias or back issues due to job activities requiring repetitive heavy lifting. A pre-existing condition worsened by job-related tasks may also be considered a workplace injury.

What types of work-related injuries does Chicago Surgical Clinic treat?

Chicago Surgical Clinic has a long and respected history of providing outstanding surgical and medical care for patients hurt on the job. Each member of the surgical team is skilled at providing urgent or emergency services for work and personal injuries. Their focus includes a fast recovery that helps you return to work as quickly as possible.  

Services offered at Chicago Surgical Clinic include:

  • General surgery, which covers everything from suturing a laceration to surgical repair of a hernia
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Reconstructive surgery
  • Pain management
  • Wound care
  • Hand surgery
  • Foot and ankle surgery and management
  • Emergency/trauma surgery

Our dedicated surgeons also work hard to keep their prices affordable and provide minimally invasive surgery whenever possible. As effective as traditional open surgery is for many issues, minimally invasive procedures are accomplished with smaller incisions and less trauma to surrounding healthy tissue. This generally reduces post-surgical pain, speeds healing time, and returns you to work and normal activities faster than after open surgery.

What should I do when I have a work injury?

Treatment for workplace injuries falls under state law. Most employers in Illinois are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees, which pays for the cost of medical care and helps replace lost income if you’re unable to work as you recover from the injury.

Companies have certain protocols and guidelines they request you follow when hurt on the job. If your injury is severe or life-threatening, the process generally starts with emergency care at the job site. Otherwise, inform your supervisor or designated management as soon as possible after an injury. Also, let the Chicago Surgical Clinic office staff know that yours is a workers’ compensation claim so that billing can be directed accordingly.
