What is workers compensation insurance/coverage?:
If you are injured at work, workers compensation coverage ensures that you receive coverage for medical expenses related to the injury as well as some degree of compensation for the income that you’ve lost as a result of being unable to work.
Workers compensation also includes the following:
- Protects employers from potential lawsuits.
- Includes accidents that occur while driving a company vehicle or any injury on the job while not being in the office or building, etc.
- In some cases, this may include coverage for certain illnesses and issues related to exposure to certain toxins in the workplace.
- Injuries in any type or workplace. This could be as small as sitting at a desk wrong to falling off a building.
Many people don’t understand or know they are eligible for workers compensation. Our goal is to ensure you that we can potentially help your work-related injuries if they were or already happened. With workers compensation and according to New York state law, the employer must pay the entire cost of the insurance and nothing can be charged to the employee who got hurt. It’s misunderstood that workers compensation only covers major injuries but that’s not the case. Our orthopedist in Nassau County can assist with work-related injuries such as the neck, shoulder, wrist, hip, back and/or any muscle pain.
Here at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation, we accept workers compensation insurance. We want to help you get the most benefits out of your injury and during your healing process. Any job has some type of risk for you to get hurt regardless of the amount of physical labor it requires.
