THINGS TO DO WHEN INJURED

  1. When treating, Do tell the doctor that you’re treating for a work injury and explain how and when the injury happened.

Restate this info every time you see a new doctor.  

Adjustors & Judges will always look to that first medical record history to determine if they believe you were injured.

2. Aggravations of a pre-existing condition are covered under the Act: Time off pay, medical care and some compensation for any residual disability. If you have one, call me.   

3. Time is your enemy:  Do not delay treatment, do not delay in providing notice and do not delay in calling me if you have any questions.  The system will use the delay against you.
