Worker's Compensation Q & A

What is a workers’ compensation injury?

A workers’ compensation injury — also known as a workplace injury — is any injury that occurs while you’re on the job. This type of injury can include:

  • Slips and falls
  • Lacerations and chemical burns
  • Accidents in company vehicles

Workplace injuries most commonly involve acute issues, but in some cases, injuries can become so severe that they can affect you for the rest of your life.

How is a workers’ compensation injury treated?

If you’re bleeding, have a broken bone, or are experiencing a similar urgent issue, seek emergency medical attention first.

Even if it’s not an emergency, it’s still essential to get treatment for a workplace injury right away — even if you’re not in immediate pain or think you can take care of it on your own. Your comprehensive workers’ compensation treatment plan at DeArk Medical Center could include:

  • Stitches or wound care
  • Casting or bandaging
  • Physical therapy

You could have an underlying issue that can worsen over the following days, or could impact your ability to do your job for the rest of your life. For instance, if you fall from a ladder — which is common — it’s normal to get up and go right back to work. But, you probably won’t be in pain right away. Similarly, with whiplash and similar soft tissue injuries, it can take up to 24-48 hours for you to feel the effects of your injury.

Because Dr. Iyamu has an extensive background in treating and processing workers’ compensation claims, you can feel confident that you’re going to get the care you need.

Do I have to pay for a workplace injury?

You shouldn’t have to, but it’s important to seek treatment from a provider who has experience in processing workers’ compensation claims, such as Dr. Iyamu. He spends time covering what happened during your injury and thoroughly diagnosing you before starting a treatment plan.

Dr. Iyamu and his team know exactly how to process workers’ compensation claims to ensure that your employer pays for all or most of your medical bills. Plus, if you need ongoing care — such as physical therapy—  Dr. Iyamu can help you get your claim approved promptly so that you can receive continuing care.
