When you are injured and missing work, the last thing you want to be worrying about is whether you are getting the most out of the benefits that are due to you. The federal worker’s comp system is tremendously complex with protocols that can be difficult to understand. Why would you try to navigate such an intricate system by yourself?
At the OWCP Docs clinic, you will find a team that is well versed in the particulars of the extent of benefits. What makes the team at OWPC Docs unique is they are not just medical professionals who are educated in the latest techniques in addressing workplace injuries. They also have on-staff professionals who know the ins and outs of the law, and how to file benefit claims so that there is no confusion or delay in the receiving of benefits because procedures were not followed. If you are injured, facing time off work and possibly short of long-term disability, you don’t have time to immediately become an expert in federal workers comp insurance law. You need to be able to find a team you trust to navigate the system and get you access to all the benefits you are due.
Knowing that you are receiving top notch medical care, as well as knowing that subsequent connected therapies are covered can go a long way toward helping the healing process. If you are worried about when you will have to report back to work or whether your missed income is covered, that stress can add to recovery time or complicate the process.
The benefits are there to ensure that you do not have to bear any injury-related costs, but that is only the case if procedures are followed and the paperwork is filed correctly. Trying to do everything yourself while dealing with a painful and potentially debilitating injury is a difficult course of action.
The responsibilities you have to yourself and your loved ones cannot be met if you are unable to work unless you are receiving the full range of the benefits that are due to you under the workers’ comp program.
You are entitled to a set of benefits and medical treatment that will address the entire issue stemming from your work-related injury. Simply going to a doctor to receive pain medication or temporary fixes to a problem so you can return to work sooner than you should does you no good. You might have a real paycheck quicker, but that does nothing to insure that you will not reinjure yourself and find yourself back in the same position.
Receiving claim assistance from an experienced group of medical professionals is a great option so that you can work with a team that not only knows the benefits you are entitled to, but will fight to make sure you receive them and then provide you with the top notch medical care you deserve. Don’t trust your work related injury to anyone who doesn’t know everything you are entitled to or doesn’t have the ability to make sure you receive those benefits.
