Garland TX Workers’ Compensation Doctors
When a work-related injury prevents you from doing your job or enjoying time with friends and family, it is important to determine if you are eligible to file for workers’ compensation. Medical and disability benefits are available to federal, state, and private employees, and these benefits can provide full coverage for your care-related expenses while also helping with your monthly bills. Each year, the government and private workers’ compensation insurance companies pay billions of dollars in benefits to injured workers. If you are entitled to benefits, seeking a prompt medical diagnosis is the first step toward collecting the compensation you deserve.
At Pain Stop MD, we provide diagnostic and treatment services for injured employees in Garland, Texas and the surrounding areas. Focusing our practice on injuries that are eligible for workers’ compensation, we have extensive experience helping patients recover from acute and chronic conditions resulting from accidents, overuse, and repetitive stress. If you have been injured at work, we can put you on a treatment plan so that you can get back to work as quickly and safely as possible, and we can help you complete the paperwork necessary to secure workers’ compensation benefits.
