Frisco TX Workers’ Compensation Doctors
According to federal government data, approximately one in four Americans will experience a disabling injury during his or her working years. This includes traumatic injuries from accidents such as falls and vehicle collisions as well as overuse injuries resulting from physical exertion and repetitive stress. Contacting Frisco TX Workers’ Compensation Doctors to discuss your injury is very important.
If you have been injured on the job, or if you are experiencing symptoms of an overuse injury, it is important that you seek medical attention promptly. Your symptoms could continue to worsen without medical intervention; and, over time, your injury could lead to long-term or permanent complications if left untreated. In addition, if you are entitled to claim medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation, your eligibility will expire if you wait too long to seek help. As a result, to protect your health and your right to benefits, you should see a doctor as soon as possible.

4. Continued Care
If your injury requires ongoing care, we can continue to treat you throughout the time that you are receiving workers’ compensation benefits – whether this is weeks, months, or years. Many types of injuries require ongoing treatment, pain management, and rehabilitation, and we can guide you through a recovery plan that is designed to help you return to work when the time is right.
5. Avoiding Premature Termination of Benefits
If the government or your employer’s insurance company is telling you that you need to return to work but you do not feel that you are ready, it is important that you consult with your physician. It is not unusual for employees to have their benefits terminated prematurely, and we can help make sure this does not happen to you.
