Was Your Mouth Injured on the Job?
Some occupations have environments which can be more conducive to work-related mouth trauma. Among these are jobs involving mechanics, construction, cleaning, health care, food service and agriculture. Mouth trauma can be the result of a vehicle accident, machinery malfunction, falling object, and slip and fall accidents. If you incurred mouth trauma while you were working, you can file a workers’ compensation claim for your dental injuries.
Many job-related injuries occurring above the neck involve some type of mouth trauma. It can be related to tooth damage such as having a tooth knocked out, chipped or broken. It could also be related to jaw trauma. An injury that involves the temporomandibular joint can produce lasting problems if not addressed in a timely fashion.
