Were you injured in a work accident? You need to notify your employer right away. You may need to get treatment within a medical provider care network. The doctor you choose can make a difference in your recovery. Certain clinics may push for you to return to work before you have healed.
A workers’ compensation lawyer can help you obtain appropriate medical treatment. If you are receiving treatment, but don’t feel the care offered is fully addressing your injury it might be time to change doctors.

Where Did The Injury Occur?
Proving an injury occurred at work can be difficult especially if you do not tell your employer about the injury right away. An insurance adjuster will often complete an investigation and speak with possible witnesses and co-workers. For example, you may have told a co-worker you hurt your back at soccer practice. This offhand comment that fails to include that the injury happened at work, but got worse while at soccer practice could hurt your claim.
