Why Workmen's Compensation?

Understanding how this process works will help you make a well informed decision when it comes to seeking compensation for time lost on the job. Workers compensation laws are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are not required to cover medical bills related to their on-the-job injury, and are provided with monetary awards to cover loss of wages directly related to the accident, as well as to compensate for permanent physical impairments.

When you are injured on the job, it is important for you to take the necessary steps to get the help that you need. Spinal injuries are common in many different types of work. Jobs that require you to lift a great deal can sometimes be the cause of injury, especially if you are not lifting in the correct manner. When you are injured on the job, it is important for you to know the evaluation process involved with workmen's compensation. It is beneficial to receive compensation as you are recovering from your injury. Do not delay in getting an evaluation. There is a specific amount of time in which you should obtain your evaluation and report your injury in order to receive these benefits while you are recovering.

If you are eligible to receive workmen's compensation, it is important that you pursue an evaluation through a qualified practitioner. Dr. Milaniís staff is experienced with the steps and procedures required to make sure that you receive all the benefits that you are entitled to under the Workmen's Compensation Statute.

Insurance Approval

After an injury on the job, it is important that you file immediately for workmen's compensation.

Dr. Milani will do a thorough examination so that our staff can accurately file your claim with the insurance company. Once we have submitted this information, the claims department can start working on the approval process, and you can begin the healing process.
