Federal Work Injuries Q & A

Why is it important to seek medical care with a Department of Labor expert?

Advanced Care Specialists staff are US Department of Labor experts who provide comprehensive care for federal employees with work-related injuries. Their professionals have had specialized training that exceeds training required by state and local workers’ compensation programs.

The US Department of Labor’s Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs requires special forms for reporting federal work injuries, which the experienced staff at Advanced Care Specialists can help you complete.  

Federal workers’ compensation chiropractors and doctors must also be able to accurately document injuries as required by federal law. Your doctor must be a DOL expert in order to get you all of the specialized help you need. Poor documentation of federal work injuries can delay or even invalidate your benefits.
