Common Injuries for Postal Workers
U.S. postal workers make deliveries to over 100 million locations across the country every year, statistics from the Government Accountability Office show. This is a job that is fraught with risk due to the volume of shifts each worker is assigned on any given day, meaning that injuries are quite common. It is also estimated that postal workers sustain over thirty thousand injuries every year, with over 30 percent of these attributed to the delivery of mail.

DFEC and Injured Postal Workers
As a postal worker hired by the federal government, you are entitled to compensation which will cover your medical expenses and miscellaneous losses should you get injured in the line of duty. DFEC, or the Division of Federal Employees Compensation program oversees all injured postal worker benefits to determine if they have merit before assigning compensation to help with things like hospital treatment, medical supplies as well as rehabilitation.
