WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WORKERS’ COMP
Seeking medical care and consultation should be a top priority.
Your case may be time-sensitive. Many insurance carriers have a time limit on any personal injury claims you can make following a work-related accident.
Evaluation should be sought immediately following an accident on the job or exposure to dangerous conditions or chemicals.
WORK-RELATED INJURIES CAN VARY GREATLY DEPENDING ON THE INDUSTRY AND NATURE OF THE JOB, HOWEVER, COMMON REASONS FOR WORK-RELATED INJURIES INCLUDE:
- Muscle, ligament or tendon injury due to overexertion
- Neck or back injuries from slipping or tripping on the job site
- Injuries due to equipment failure
- Automobile accidents
- Bone or joint injuries due to repetitive or strained motion
WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
[Since my bulging disc correction] I haven't had pain in my leg at all and had only a little pain in my back from my surgery, but zero pain in my legs, the sciatica is gone.
Edward, age 55, bulging disc injury
Today my back and hip feel tremendous. My legs are still a bit weak, possibly from nerve damage that occurred prior to surgery. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times per week. I was back at work on November 15th, 3 weeks after surgery.
Robert, age 58,
history of disc herniation and previous surgeries
Nobody likes to be injured and neck surgery is a delicate procedure, but Dr. Massoud explained what needed to be done, which made me feel more comfortable. [Post-surgery] I felt great, and today the pain is completely gone.
Francisco, Age 48, Cervical Injury
