How Workers’ Compensation Works
When an employee is injured on-the-job, they are taken care of. Medical bills are paid and the worker is compensated for any time that is missed. If the injury is permanent, the worker is determined to be permanently disabled, the disability is “rated” and the worker is compensated for any damages.
The employee often has a right to select their own attending physician immediately after receiving their initial treatment from an employer-designated physician if the employer has one. Locating the source of your injury could be the difference between fixing an issue and living with something for a long period of time. Our team of professionals at Stewart Parkway Medical have the specialized training to get workers back to optimal health without the need of addictive pain medication or dangerous surgery.
