Work injuries occur not only due to accidents but also due to repetitive stress (doing the same thing over and over again). Back and neck injuries are the most common types. Injuries can be considered work-related even if the work environment is only partially responsible.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for relinquishment of the right to sue for the tort of negligence.
Signs of work-related injuries:
- neck pain
- back pain
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- shoulder pain

Dr. Karras, a Qualified Medical Evaluator and Trauma Specialist, can determine what injuries you might have sustained and provide the care and treatment you need. We accept worker’s compensation as well as most major PPO and HMO plans. If you suffered a workplace injury or are in need of workers’ compensation, reach out to us at (619) 294-9205.
