Workplace Injuries

workplaceinjury (1)If you have are hurt on the job, seek care as soon as possible.   Ignoring pain can lengthen your recovery time and possibly lead to permanent damage.  There are some rules that you must follow if making a work injury claim with your employer.

  1. You must fill out an incident report with a human resources representative.

  2. Your human resources department should provide you with a list of providers you can see for your injury.  You must see one of the providers on this panel for the first sixty days.  After sixty days, you are free to see a provider of your choice.  Companies are required to have chiropractor providers on their panel.  If Dr. Sciullo is not currently on the panel, you can request your human resources department add him.

  3.  While company policies vary, generally the first five days of missed work will be taken as vacation or sick days.   After that, most policies will cover employees for missed pay.

  4. More companies are requiring drug/alcohol testing with every work comp claim.  Drug/Alcohol positive testing may result in job termination and claim denial.

The paperwork for a work injury can be very daunting.  We will handle all of the paperwork and authorizations for your treatment in our office so that you can concentrate on recovery.
