Información bibliográfica 2nd Quarter 2009, Vol.14, No.2, p.198-205. 20 ref.
Resumen Tractor-related injury claims data from Colorado workers' compensation records were analyzed for 1992-2004. Descriptive analyses of the costs, characteristics, and contributing factors were conducted. A total of 642 claims were identified as being tractor-related, of which 60% involved sprains and contusions. A total of 21% of tractor-related claims were associated with the worker mounting or dismounting a tractor, and an additional 10% were associated with the worker falling, jumping, or slipping off a tractor. Among all claims associated with tractor mounting or dismounting, 35% involved the ankle and 15% involved the knee. The median medical claim cost was USD 319, and the median medical plus indemnity claim cost was USD 335. Other findings are discussed.
