FIRST, GET MEDICAL TREATMENT
In an emergency situation, get medical care first, but you should then notify your employer as quickly as possible. For a less threatening injury or a condition that’s ongoing and chronic, your employer should give you a list of doctors who meet workers’ compensation requirements. Make that appointment immediately. Obtaining medical treatment and recovering your health is your top priority after a workplace injury or sickness. If you aren’t satisfied with your treatment or feel that you need a second opinion, our Fresno post injury attorneys can suggest options while keeping you eligible for benefits. Don’t miss any medical appointments. Your treatment record reveals the nature and extent of your injury; it’s evidence we use when filing your claim. Your final disability rating hinges upon what the doctors report.
