Workers' Compensation / No Fault Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

If you’re injured or develop a work-related illness at no fault of your own, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation, or workers comp. This is a type of state-mandated insurance that provides medical benefits and lost wages if you have suffered an injury or illness related to your work through no fault of your own.

To submit a workers’ compensation claim, you must provide proper documentation from a certified medical provider. Nassim Medical is prepared to provide the appropriate documentation needed for your workers' comp claim.

What expenses are covered by workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation usually covers:

  • Lost wages
  • Retraining costs
  • Compensation for permanent injuries
  • Medical care related to the illness or injury
  • Survivor benefits for workers killed on the job

Workers’ compensation injuries are often denied if your injury was self-inflicted, violated company policy or the law, or if you were not working when you were injured.

What types of workers’ compensation injuries are there?

Workers can become injured in a variety of ways, but strains and sprains are the most common work-related injury. Other common injuries are the result of:

  • Slipping, tripping, or falling
  • Overexertion
  • Being struck by objects
  • Highway accidents
  • Repetitive motion
  • Machinery accidents
  • Workplace violence

How are workers’ compensation injuries diagnosed and treated?

Nassim Medical offers on-site diagnostic techniques to diagnose and treat your injury or illness immediately; you don’t have to wait for insurance authorizations. 

Besides a physical examination, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim might recommend the following tests to identify the type of pain or illness you’re experiencing.

  • MRI or CT scans
  • X-ray
  • Bone scans
  • Blood tests

In combination with your physical exam, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim may use musculoskeletal ultrasound to diagnose your soft tissue injuries and treat your pain. Musculoskeletal ultrasound technology enables them to provide a faster diagnosis than other diagnostic tools because it can identify damage immediately.

Once they identify the cause of your work-related pain or illness, Dr. Ariel and Dr. Roland Nassim may recommend physical therapy, regenerative medicine techniques that activate your body’s natural healing properties, cortisol (steroid) injections, or lifestyle changes to treat your condition.
