Worker's Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?
If you are injured on the job, workers’ compensation provides medical benefits to help you heal. In workers’ comp cases, there is usually an agreement that your job will remain safe until you’ve recovered from the disability or injury. Specific benefits vary by region, employer, and the nature of your claim.

Health insurance may also be involved, and coverage often includes any chiropractic treatments or physical therapy needed in your rehabilitation to get you back on the job.

What do I need to know about workers’ comp?
The whole idea behind workers’ compensation is that it doesn’t really matter if you or your employer was careless in the workplace, or if there were hazardous conditions at work that contributed to the injury.

In other words, if you were involved in an injury at work it is “no fault” of yours. That is a way to protect both the workers and the employers who may try to blame each other for the cause or circumstances of the injury. It’s also intended to prevent time-consuming and costly lawsuits.

How long does workers’ comp cover me?
Your workers’ compensation claim should allow for a full recovery with the goal of getting you back to work quickly. Sufficient time for both treatment and recovery should be covered by your claim, and you will typically receive your full salary during your recuperation. Your claim should also cover all medical costs, including chiropractic fees.

Are chiropractic treatments covered by workers’ comp?
Chiropractic treatments are considered legitimate and necessary health care situations that are generally covered by insurance companies, and can therefore be covered in workers’ comp claims.
