Personal Injury Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

If you were injured on the job or in an auto accident recently, you may have a right to workers’ compensation, a form of insurance that provides medical benefits and wage replacement to employees who have been hurt at work.

These benefits are designed to ease the financial burden of being injured at work, so you can return to your job sooner, without worrying about how you’re going to pay your medical bills or make up for lost wages.

In the state of New Jersey, your employer has the right to choose a doctor that’s in their network to assess and treat your injuries, so it’s important to connect with both your employer and your physician before an office visit. In exchange for this privilege, the carrier must authorize any tests, medications, or procedures that the doctor prescribes.

How do I know which doctor to choose?

When looking at pain management doctors, you want to opt for a practice that’s familiar with the workers’ compensation process and focuses on speedy recovery in their approach. Fortunately, the New Jersey Pain Management team understands the administrative documentation and time frame restrictions required to take advantage of workers’ compensation.

Not only will New Jersey Pain Management physicians provide extremely detailed reports for your employer’s carrier, but they will also make sure you are able to return to work within the allotted time your employer expects you back. Each doctor at the practice has the experience, knowledge, and understanding of the workers’ compensation process to treat your injuries and get you back on track.

Why does the practice I choose matter?

At the end of the day, every patient wants a doctor that puts them first.  At New Jersey Pain Management, you’ll find just that and more. While working with you to treat your injury and alleviate pain, the team will simultaneously work with your workers’ compensation case manager, so you can focus on getting better.

The physical and emotional toll that a work-related injury takes on your body requires the right treatment from a doctor who cares. Call or book an appointment online with New Jersey Pain Management to find the right workers’ compensation doctor for you.
