Workers Compensation Injury Management

Many manual labor jobs provide works compensation coverage for injured workers. If you are injured at work, then your employer may send you to our urgent care center for an evaluation. We Offer Physical Exams and Management for Workers’ Compensation.

Why Do You Need an Immediate Physical Examination for Workers’ Compensation?

If you are injured at work, then your employer may send you to our urgent care center for an evaluation. During the examination, we will collect blood and urine samples for your employer to prove that you were not impaired while you were injured. This type of evaluation protects your employer, but it also protects you when you want to apply for federal or state workers’ comp insurance. These types of government programs are designed for paying for medical bills and living expenses, but you are disqualified when you don’t provide the appropriate documentation concerning your injuries.

What Are Some of the Documents That Federal or State Agencies Will Require?

The Workers Compensation Board will provide workers’ compensation coverage only if all the criteria apply. Applying for and receiving workers’ comp benefits is a complicated process that often requires hiring an attorney who can collect the proper documentation about your injuries.

Some of these documents can include:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • MRI results
  • X-rays
  • Physical examination forms

You Must Follow the Guidelines Provided by an Urgent Care Center’s Physicians

While recovering from an injury along with applying for state or federal workers’ compensation coverage, you must manage your health issues that were a result of a workplace accident. An injury in the workplace can occur suddenly or it can occur from long-term exposure to dangerous equipment, loud noises, or dangerous pollutants. If you don’t keep your appointments or follow your physician’s guidelines for managing your injury, federal employees can refuse to pay for medical expenses and may not provide workers’ compensation benefits (disability benefits).

Some of the Things That Can Disqualify You from Receiving Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance program that your employer may need to pay for along with deducting money from your paycheck. You have a right to apply for the benefits provided by this workers’ compensation insurance program, but you must follow its rules precisely.

There are unscrupulous individuals who apply for the insurance program by breaking the rules with these methods:

  • Applying for benefits for an injury that was incurred away from the job
  • Exaggerating an injury to receive additional compensation
  • Faking an injury to apply for benefits
  • Using an old injury to apply for workers’ compensation
  • Pretending that an injury hasn’t healed when it has healed
  • Failing to disclose other issues concerning an injury
