Workers Compensation Q & A

What is a workers’ compensation injury?

A workers’ compensation injury occurs while you are engaged in your usual and customary activities as an employee. Your employer is required to have workers’ compensation insurance to cover the cost of your care when you are injured on the job. Upon acceptance of a claim, the insurance coverage may include:

  • Cost of medical care
  • Temporary disability
  • Permanent disability
  • Vocational rehabilitation, which is training for a new vocation if you’re unable to return to your usual job

How are workers’ compensation injuries treated?

From a clinical standpoint, work-related injuries are treated the same as any other injury.  From a business standpoint, worker’s compensation injuries require additional administrative tasks and close communication with your worker’s compensation team.  Our collective goal is to establish the correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan as soon as possible to allow for your return to work.
