The Ways that Core Medical Center Can Help You after a Workplace Accident
If you’ve been hurt on the job, you’re not alone. According to statistics compiled by the U.S. Department of Labor, nearly 3 million people seek treatment every year for injuries sustained in the workplace. Of course, when you’ve been hurt on the job, you generally have a right to seek compensation for your losses, either through a workers’ compensation claim or, in states like Texas, where an employer can opt out of work comp, through a civil lawsuit.
Your first priority, when you’ve been hurt at work, is typically to return to maximum health as soon as possible. While your employer may require that you be examined by a physician of their choosing, you also have the right to seek medical care from your own doctor. When you come to Core Medical Center, you’ll get comprehensive medical care, but you’ll also get assistance with all the things you need to do to file a workers’ compensation claim.
Quality Healthcare and Administrative Assistance to Injured Workers
At Core Medical Center, we understand the impact a workplace injury can have on your life. Our functional restoration program is geared toward helping you reestablish the physical health and the skills to return to your prior occupation. We can build a custom program that focuses on the physical skills required for your job, so that we can help you safely restore those skills. We can also help determine your impairment rating, should your injury have some level of permanency.
We also have staff members who are knowledgeable about the documentation required to successfully file a state or federal workers’ compensation claim. We will help ensure that your documentation is correctly filled out and timely filed, so that there’s minimal risk of denial because of a technicality.
Helping Employers Manage Workplace Injuries
We also offer administrative assistance to employers who seek to minimize exposure to increased work comp insurance costs and potential OSHA sanctions. We have a staff member who can work with you to help reduce the number of OSHA reportable incidents.
