Dealing with Doctors After a Workplace Injury
Enlist the Help of Experienced Harrisburg Workers' Compensation Attorneys
It can be hard to know what to do after an on-the-job injury. Typically, a workers' compensation claims adjuster will set up what is called an "independent medical exam" or IME. This is one of the most important factors in your workers' compensation claim process. You will need to tell the doctor every detail about your job accident and the impact it has had on your ability to do your job as well as your day-to-day life. This is especially true when it comes to on-the-job brain injuries, work-related spinal cord injuries and workplace mental health injury or impairment due to stress.
Metzger Wickersham is an extremely experienced team of personal injury attorneys in Pennsylvania who have been handling workers' compensation cases for decades. We always suggest that claimants start writing a "medical journal" as soon as they became injured at work or begin feeling pain on the job. Notes about your job injury symptoms will be helpful to general physicians, occupational therapists, orthopedic surgeons and mental health providers alike.
