Getting hurt on the job can be an emotional roller coaster. Not only do you have to deal with an injury, but you may also end up at odds with insurance companies and even your employer over what actually happened and what compensation you’re entitled to. If you are a civilian federal employee, the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs will handle your claim. This department is a division of the Department of Labor, which is why it makes sense for federal employees to use a DOL doctor if they have been injured on the job.
Complete Medical Care
DOL doctors are experienced in every aspect of being injured on the job, and you will receive the most complete medical care possible. We understand the federal employee’s compensation act from back to front and have extensive experience treating virtually every type of work-related injury. You’ll be treated for any acute injuries that occurred, and you’ll also receive long-term treatment to ensure you heal properly.
Doctors Working in Your Best Interest
Our goal is to get you back to work in the shortest time possible, but not at the expense of your health. It’s not uncommon to rush claimants back to work to avoid paying out more in compensation, but we will work on your behalf to get you better and will only recommend going back to work when you’re medically fit to do so. In some cases, you may end up on light duty, doing some form of alternative work or with part-time work until you’re ready to get back to full time. Whatever the situation, you can feel comfortable knowing we have your best interests at heart.
Help with Filing Claims
Filing claims can be one of the most challenging aspects of getting injured on the job. You need to fill forms out completely and correctly, to have a chance of getting the compensation you deserve. An experienced DOL doctor will help you fill out all forms properly so there are no delays in being compensated. Even a relatively short delay of a few weeks means you’ll be paying for your expenses out of pocket, which isn’t always possible for everyone. We can minimize any risks that come with filing your claim incorrectly and you can just focus on getting better and returning to work as soon as possible.
