Worker’s Compensation Q&A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation is insurance that covers your medical expenses for injuries and health problems that occur while you’re on the job. You may also receive part of your wages if you can’t work while you heal and recover.

 

Your employer pays for workers’ compensation, so you’re protected and can get the care you need following a job-related injury.

 

After a work-related injury, seek emergency care if needed and be sure your employer knows about your accident. If you don’t need emergency care, schedule a physical evaluation as soon as possible to document your injury and get the necessary treatment.

What injuries qualify for workers’ compensation?

While some occupations increase your chances of injury, every work environment poses risks. For example, people working in an office may trip over something that shouldn’t be in the middle of the floor and end up with a broken bone.

The most common causes of workplace injuries include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Being struck by an object
  • Accidents caused by tools
  • Car and truck accidents
  • Repetitive use injuries
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Crush injuries
  • Heavy lifting

 

Certain illnesses may qualify for workers’ compensation. For example, nerve damage due to toxin exposure or a lung disease caused by years of inhaling dust or chemicals would both qualify.

What should I expect during a workers’ compensation appointment?

After learning about what caused your injury, your provider completes a physical exam and possibly a neurological exam. They also order testing as needed to diagnose your injury or illness accurately. 

Depending on your health care needs, your individualized treatment plan may include one or more therapies. A few examples of treatments frequently provided by the team at Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center include:

  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Nerve blocks
  • Joint injections
  • Trigger point injections
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Medication management

Your provider focuses on reducing your pain and promoting healing. They may also recommend essential treatments like physical therapy that help you regain strength and get back to work.

Will my physician complete workers’ compensation documents?

Yes, Las Vegas Spine & Pain Center promptly completes all the required reports and forms. They have years of experience documenting workers’ compensation cases, determining whether you need rehabilitation, when you can return to work, and generally serving as your advocate.
