Phoenix Workers Compensation Orthopedic Surgeon
FXRX accepts workers compensation claims for treatment. With industrial injuries, it is crucial to receive treatment with a top industrial orthopedic surgeon in Phoenix to maximize the chances of success and return to work.
Q. Can my employer contest the validity of my claim and contest that my injury is not work related?
A. Once you file a claim for worker compensation for your Orthopedic injury, the insurance carrier will perform an investigation into the matter. Before your Phoenix Orthopedic doctor is given payment authorization, the insurance carrier will verify your claim, and once they have established the cause of your injury as related to your work, your Phoenix Orthopedic surgeon will provide you with medical treatment and care.
Q. If I am unable to perform my usual duties due to my Orthopedic injuries, will I have to be out of work?
A. The Orthopedic doctor that you are consulting will perform a full evaluation of your injuries. In case of a partial disability, your Orthopedic surgeon in Phoenix will be able to recommend a light duty program for you. A light duty program will let you continue working in a job position that has less strenuous work which you are physically able to perform.
Despite the recommendation of your Phoenix Orthopedic doctor, if your employer does not have a light duty program, and are unable to create one for you, you might have to go out of work for the duration of your treatment.
Q. If I have been assigned a light duty program, and I am asked to perform a task that is not a part of my job description, what can I do about it?
A. In the event that you are asked to do a job that your Orthopedic doctor Phoenix advises against, make sure that you contact your Workers Compensation Coordinator. You should also inform the office and your Phoenix Orthopedic surgeon so that any confusion regarding the jobs that you cannot perform are resolved promptly and with minimum confusion.
Q. Do I have to return to work the same day as the injury?
A. Your Orthopedic doctor in Phoenix will first perform an evaluation of your injury. In case the injury is determined by the Orthopedic surgeon as minor, you may resume your work the same day. After the injury, you must visit your employer assigned Orthopedic doctor so that they can advise you on whether you are ready to resume your duties, or require a medical leave of absence.
Q. What do I have to do in order to get excused for my absence from work in case of an injury?
A. Depending on your injury and the evaluation of your injury by your Orthopedic doctor Phoenix, you may be excused from returning to the office for the day. In order to get an official excuse from work, you must report your injury to your Orthopedic surgeon. You may have a genuine injury that prevents you from working, but if you do not consult your Orthopedic doctor , you cannot be officially excused from work, and it might count as an absence instead of an approved official leave from work.
