Workers' Compensation Q & A
What is workers’ compensation?
When you get injured at work, your employer is responsible for covering the costs of your medical care, as well as lost wages, which is called workers’ compensation. Though workers’ compensation is a required benefit, many health care providers refuse to care for work-related injuries due to the additional paperwork required to cover the medical care they give to the injured worker.
The team at reNu Medical & Injury Center specializes in workers’ compensation. They understand the paperwork involved and work closely with attorneys and insurance adjusters to ensure you get the medical care you need.
When should I seek medical care for a work injury?
If you suffer an injury at work, you should seek medical care right away, even if your symptoms are mild or seem to be resolving. Work injuries may cause an imbalance in your body that can lead to chronic health conditions if left untreated.
The team at reNu Medical & Injury Center specializes in identifying these imbalances and provides personalized care to restore balance, promote healing, and prevent long-term health complications.
