Workers Compensation Injuries

We Work For You, NOT Your Company! 

What are the common types of work-related injuries?

No matter how careful you are, the workplace can be dangerous. Whether you work in construction or hold a low-risk office job, you are at risk of injury. A work-related injury is one that happens while you were doing something on behalf of your employer or otherwise in the course of employment.  Some of the typical work-related injuries are:

  • Muscle sprains
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Injuries from falling debris

A work-related injury can occur while using a company-owned vehicle and conducting work on behalf of your employer. Mental injuries like anxiety or depression may be covered if they were sustained on the job or caused by the job. A pre-existing condition worsened during the course of employment may be covered as well.

How soon do I need to see a specialist after a work-related injury?

If you suffer a work-related injury or illness, you may be entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits. The types of injuries covered by workers' compensation include physical injuries, illnesses, and some psychological or stress-related injuries. Advanced Care Specialists recommend you seek an evaluation immediately after a work injury.  

What are your rights through workers’ compensation?

As an injured worker, you have the right to chose your own doctor even if your company sends you to the company doctor. Do not let your company force you to be treated by a doctor that does not have your well-being as the first priority.State law requires employers to have worker's compensation insurance for the workplace. No matter who is at fault for the workplace injury, the employee is covered under these insurance benefits.

What is my responsibility when injured?

You have certain responsibilities when injured in the workplace. Those responsibilities are:

  • Report your injury to your supervisor immediately 
  • Document the details of the injury, including witnesses
  • Read paperwork thoroughly before signing to ensure you are not signing away your right to receive treatment for the injury
  • Request a copy of all forms and paperwork related to the injury
