How an Emergency Room Helps a Workers’ Comp Claim
Most people are familiar with emergency rooms (ERs) as places to go for life-threatening injuries or illnesses. However, ERs can also be very helpful for workers’ compensation claims. When an employee is injured on the job, they may not be sure what to do or where to go for help. An ER can provide the necessary medical care and attention and can also document the injury and start the workers’ compensation process.
In many cases, an injured worker will need to see a specialist after being seen in the ER. emergency room doctors can refer patients to the right specialists and can also provide follow-up care if necessary. In addition, the ER staff can work with the worker’s compensation insurance company to make sure that all of the necessary paperwork is filled out correctly. As a result, going to the ER can be a smart move for anyone who has been injured on the job.
