Attorney Referrals for Work-Related Injuries

Attorney Referrals for Work-Related Injuries

We spend over a third of our day at work, which means injuries can happen! Employees who are injured on the job are eligible to collect Workers’ Compensation benefits while they recuperate. Although the claim process is intended to be straightforward, there are specific guidelines for determining whether a certain injury or illness qualifies for compensation, and certain procedures must be followed in order to file a proper claim.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Each year in the United States, millions of workers suffer occupational injuries. Workers’ Compensation is a system of protection and care put in place by state governments to assist employees injured at work. Workplace injuries range in severity, and some can be fatal.

The most common, non-life-threatening workplace injuries include:

·              Falls

·              Repetitive motion injuries

·              Slips, trips and falls

·              Overexertion

·              Falling objects or debris

·              Work-related vehicular accidents

What If I Get Injured at Work?

If you experience an injury at work, you should notify your employer immediately in writing of the injury or occupational disease and request medical services.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Workers’ Compensation Injuries

On average, one in three workplace injuries involve musculoskeletal injuries, which affect ligaments, muscles, tendons and bones. These injuries can occur due to trauma or wear and tear from daily routines.

Chiropractic care is a non-invasive form of treatment that helps promote healing and is an attractive alternative to the use of narcotic painkillers, which can lead to dependency and abuse.

Doctors of Chiropractic are trained to perform a variety of different techniques to reduce tissue inflammation caused by injury. They can also suggest therapeutic exercises that may quicken the healing process and prevent future workplace injuries by teaching proper lifting techniques.

·              Sciatica or Leg Pain

·              Neck Pain or Whiplash

·              Radiculopathy

·              Pelvic Instability
