Workers’ Compensation

If your injury is work-related, your employer is required by law to pay for your worker’s compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation insurance provides several basic benefits including medical care, supplemental job displacement benefits or vocational rehabilitation, temporary or permanent disability benefits, and death benefits.

Approximately 75 percent of hand injuries and conditions are work-related. While some may require surgery, others are conservatively treated by using a combination of physical therapy, medication, and/or splinting. Whether the problem is a simple sprain or a severe injury involving damaged nerves, lacerated tendons, or dislocations and fractures of the hand, arm or shoulder, Dr. Mosely will diagnose and evaluate your injury or condition to determine the type of inpatient and outpatient medical services and treatment that are most appropriate for you.

Work related conditions include but are not limited to:

  • Hand Fractures / Hand Sprains
  • Nerve Injuries of the Hand
  • Brachial Plexus Injuris
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Arthritis at the Base of the Thumb
  • Wrist Fractures / Wrist Sprains
  • Extensor Tendon Injuries
  • Nail Bed Injuries
  • Scaphoid Fractures
  • Tennis Elbow

Our goal is to treat, rehabilitate, reduce the risk of re-injury and restore the patient’s hand and upper extremity to a healthy and functional state as quickly as possible. In order to help you return to work safely and in a timely manner, our staff is dedicated in addressing all of your concerns and maintaining communication with your employer and workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Timely medical status reports are sent concerning your evaluation, diagnosis and treatment plan and return-to-work status.
