When an injury or illness is suffered in the workplace, your private insurance has the right to deny the claim on the basis that the compensation is the duty of the employer. By filing with North Smithfield Urgent Care, employees may become eligible for workman’s compensation, which can pay for their medical bills and rehabilitation costs, as well as partial lost wages.
Filing for workman’s compensation is a quick and easy process, but the employer must be informed of the injury beforehand. Once all necessary parties have been informed of the situation, the patient can fill out the necessary forms and then be evaluated by one of our specialists, who will provide official, credible documentation of the injury type & severity.
By failing to properly inform your employer, or by neglecting to file for workman’s compensation, you risk being denied coverage for your workplace injury or illness altogether. For more information on eligibility, contact our office.
