When Should You Seek Treatment?

You should seek treatment right away for any injury, even if it seems minor. This means seeing a doctor immediately after a work-related accident or at the first sign of any symptoms that might be due to your work duties or to toxic exposure on the job

Where Should You Go for Treatment?

If you need immediate medical attention, you should go to the nearest emergency room. If it’s not an emergency, however, you’ll need to follow your state’s rules for getting medical care.

Why Your Choice of Doctor Is Important

Doctors hired by employers or insurance companies are supposed to be objective, they often have close and financially rewarding relationships with the employers and insurers that refer cases to them.

What Should You Tell Your Doctor?

Even with the advancement of medical technology, doctors still rely on patients to report symptoms, severity of pain, and activities that are difficult or impossible to perform.

Who Pays for Your Medical Bills?

In most states, your employer is required to pay for your medical bills until a decision has been made to accept or deny your claim, at least up to a certain amount. If your claim is approved, your employer will continue to pay for your medical bills for approved treatment.
