Workplace injuries can have short- and long-term consequences for your health and comfort. If you’ve sustained a workplace injury in Marietta GA or the Greater Atlanta area, seeking medical treatment for this injury can speed your recovery and prevent long-term disability or chronic pain. Even if you are still waiting for information from your employer regarding compensation for treatment or missed days of work, it’s best not to wait to seek medical treatment for a workplace injury. During your first medical appointment, bring any emergency room records or other treatment records associated with your case. If you were in an automobile or transportation accident, police documentation of the accident is beneficial to bring as well. Finally, if your employer offers disability or other injury compensation or care, you should bring the documents outlining this program, even if you haven’t yet confirmed your eligibility or are waiting for answers. All of this information, together with the results from your medical exam and treatment, may be used to file a worker’s compensation claim to ensure you can afford the medical care you need.
