A hernia on the job injury can happen with heavy lifting. This is a tear in the abdominal or intestinal muscle wall. These can be serious and must be repaired.
What Should I Do If I Experience a Hernia Tear At Work?
Hernias that occur as the result of your employment are usually covered under workers’ compensation. Hernias will often require surgery to fix, and your employers workers’ coverage cover the surgery and the subsequent days off of work due to recovery that you will go through.
Get immediate medical attention and advise your employer as soon as possible after experiencing a hernia is crucial. You may be required to notify your employer of your condition. Seeking medical treatment right away is always important, and hernias that are not treated can have serious medical consequences. Hernias should be treated medically as soon as possible as well, so do not waste any time.
Hernia cases can be complicated because you are usually required to notify your employer within a certain amount of time after the injury. However, some cases are not diagnosed immediately or are initially misdiagnosed. If by the time an employee receives an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, this window has closed, the insurance company can deny the claim.
