It is important to receive proper care following an injury, not only to stop the pain, but to rehabilitate the affected area. Without proper healing it is more likely that an injury could later reoccur. We understand that getting injured at work is frustrating and painful, not only the injury itself but the financial stress and hardships that often coincide with injury. Our staff will recommend the best options for quick recovery while also taking into account your physical limitations that may limit your job performance while healing.
The first step is to report the incident to your employer as soon as possible and make an accurate documentation of the incident. If you need to seek treatment, ask your employer if they have a specific protocol for dealing with your particular incident. For example, do you need to see an occupational health doctor that your employer recommends? If you need to seek medical advice, receive treatment for the condition, or have to be out of work; make sure that your employer begins the process of submitting the claim and acquiring a claim number with the employer’s Worker’s Compensation insurance provider. You will need this in order to obtain financial reimbursement or coverage for any medical or rehabilitation services. Most workers’ compensation insurance covers 100% of cost of care. This allows us to treat you with no out of pocket expense.
