You expect workers’ compensation to cover accidents and injuries that occur due to machines, driving company vehicles, or falls at the workplace. Workers’ compensation can also cover the following.
Any health condition you feel has been caused due to your work conditions should be brought to the attention of your human resources and workers’ compensation department. They can refer you to Halper Family Medicine for evaluation.
The benefits you receive match your injury and needs. If you miss work due to a work injury, you’re compensated with lost wages and for the medical care costs related to your injury. Other benefits you might get include compensation if your injury makes it so you’re unable to work or can only do a job that has a lower pay scale.
In some cases, workers’ compensation pays for job retraining if you need to move to a new job due to your injury. Workers’ compensation can also cover hearing aids, contacts, glasses, or prosthetics, if necessary.
You might also receive benefits from workers’ compensation that include:
Your human resources department will offer a complete scale of benefits once the doctors at Halper Family Medicine have diagnosed your injury and confirmed that it’s due to your work environment.
If you experience an injury at work, even a seemingly minor one, it’s important to be evaluated by medical staff as soon as possible. Your employer chooses the practice for your initial diagnosis; after this, you choose your practice from an approved list.
Refusing treatment or failing to report your accident or illness in a timely manner means you may lose your right to claim workers’ compensation benefits – even if your condition worsens.
