THINGS TO DO WHEN INJURED
- 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.
