Work-Related Dental Injury

It covers all types of injuries, but people commonly think of dental injuries as somehow different. The fact is that dental injuries are compensable, the same as any other work-related injury. At Invictus Law, P.C., we understand the physical and emotional toll a work-related dental injury can have on an individual. Our Board-Certified workers’ compensation specialist is dedicated to serving the residents of Southern California, including Orange County and the Inland Empire, from our offices located in Orange and Ontario. We offer comprehensive legal services to workers who have suffered dental injuries on the job, ensuring they receive the compensation and care they deserve.

Understanding Work-Related Dental Injuries

Dental injuries in the workplace can range from minor chips and cracks to more severe issues such as lost teeth or jaw damage. These injuries can result from a variety of accidents, including slips, falls, or being struck by or against objects. In industries where physical labor is prevalent, or where there’s a high risk of impact from objects, workers are particularly vulnerable to dental injuries. The consequences of such injuries can extend beyond physical pain, affecting your ability to eat, speak, and maintain your overall health.

Dental injuries aren’t limited solely to impact injuries either. A dental injury can arise due to cumulative trauma or repetitive stress. A dental injury could also be traced to a consequence of a work injury to another body part that creates a dental injury from teeth grinding, medication side effects or other consequences of the injury that create dental problems.

Dental care can be costly and extensive, including solutions such as implants or oral surgery. California workers’ compensation requires the payment of all medical care reasonably required to cure or relieve the effects of the injury, in line with scientifically based medical treatment guidelines. No cost of treatment should ever be billed to the worker that is related to the injury.

In addition to medical treatment, workers are also entitled to wage replacement benefits while they are out of work due to the injury. Dental injury can cause both temporary and permanent disability.
