Even when you take all precautions, people still get injured on the job. In fact, over 9,600 people have a work related injury every year in Delaware. Over 4,800 of those injuries led to days away from work, job transfer or restrictions on job requirements after an injury. If you get hurt on the job, what should you do first?
Seeing a Physical Therapist after a work accident is a smart move.
Physical therapy is skilled care delivered by a licensed physical therapist. A physical therapist is an expert in movement science and will help get you better in no time! We regularly help people after they have been injured, and also help to work with their employers, when appropriate, to make sure changes are made in the work environment to avoid injuries.
If you've been injured in an accident at work, we encourage you to download our checklist of things to do following a workplace accident- you can find it here. You'll want to make sure you've reported the injury
to your employer, and you may want to consider talking to a worker's compensation attorney.
Whether you are working with an attorney or simply through your employer, Performance PT has over 25 years of experience in helping people recover from accidents of all sorts. We work to help you feel better soon, and strengthen areas to help prevent future injuries as well. We also work closely with local Doctors, insurance companies and employers to make sure all necessary reporting is completed in a timely fashion, to make processing of any work-related insurance claims as easy as possible. After all, being injured is painful enough- why should the administration of a claim add insult to injury?

Auto Accidents can happen at any time, even when you are being careful. Bad weather, excess speed, distracted and impaired driving are the leading cause of accidents in this Country. The Delaware State Police report that there were over 24,000 crashes in 2015, resulting in 133 deaths, over 8,000 people injured, and an economic loss of over $641 million dollars.
