THINGS TO DO WHEN INJURED

Doctor and Patient

TELL YOUR DOCTOR

When treating, do tell the doctor that you’re treating for a work injury and explain how and when the injury happened. 


Restate this info every time you see a new doctor.  


Adjustors & Judges will always look to that first medical record history to determine if they believe you were injured.

DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT

Time is your enemy:  Do not delay treatment, do not delay in providing notice, and do not delay in calling me if you have any questions.  The system will use the delay against you.
