Annual Dallas Federal DOL / OWCP Work Injuries For the nearly 1.3 million people living in Dallas, there are an estimated 25,000 federal jobs (about 2% give or take). According to OSHA’s Federal Work Injury and Illness Statistics, published annually, about 3.3% of all federal employees suffer work-related injuries and illnesses each year. That means that in Dallas, we will have an estimated 825 federal employees each year who suffer a work-related accident. That’s just in Dallas. If you take all of Dallas County, that number just about doubles to 1,650 annual injured federal employees. United States Postal Service Injuries More stats: most federal workers comp injuries occur at the United States Postal Service (USPS).
Nearly 7.2% of their 597,000 employees suffer work-related conditions each year. In 2015, that number was 42,887. Now, that’s just the number of REPORTED cases. This doesn’t take into account all of the injured postal employees who seek care from their family physician or from some other doctor who isn’t trained to handle DOL. In many of these cases, the injured federal worker is forced to file on their personal health insurance, which causes them to lose all of their federal worker’s compensation benefits and forces them to pay everything out of their own pocket for work injury treatment.
Not Enough Dallas DOL / OWCP Injury Doctors For the 25,000 Dallas federal employees, and nearly 50,000 Dallas county federal employees, there are not nearly enough qualified Dallas doctors who know how to handle DOL / OWCP workers comp claims.
