Slip, Trips, and Falls at Work are Common: What You Need to Know

Did you know that there are an average of 7 million work injuries every year? Every state requires businesses to have workers’ compensation insurance. So, if you get injured on the job, your employer is likely liable to cover your medical expenses.

At Advanced Care Specialists in Racine, Wisconsin, we’re here to help you every step of the way if you get injured in the workplace. Not only can we take care of all your medical needs, but we can help you through the workers’ compensation process

We can help you fill in and file your paperwork and even provide a detailed record of your injuries if you have to go to court. Here are some reasons why you should let us take care of you in your recovery process.

What you should know about your employer

If you get injured at work, your employer is legally obligated to cover your expenses in two ways.

Your employer has to cover your medical expenses

Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance should cover all of your medical expenses if you’ve been injured on the job, from diagnosis to treatment. That would include your appointments here, your prescriptions, any operations and procedures, and any medical equipment you may need.

Your employer has to compensate you for lost wages

In addition to your medical bills, your employer is also responsible for covering two-thirds of your weekly wages while you’re out of work. So, it’s important that you see a doctor and take all of the necessary steps to get the workers’ compensation process going.
