Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 10, 2015
After a work injury many times the next steps can be confusing. A work injury should always be reported to the job supervisor and then the process of paperwork and finding the right doctor or medical help begins. It is always in the best interest of the company to get their employee back to work as quickly as possible. This, however may not always be in the best interest of the employee's health. Some companies will have a "certified" management group which will mandate that the employee sees only their doctors.
However, many companies, (most) are not managed by a "certified" company and therefore the employee is able to seek out any medical opinion they want. This is important to understand and Hey Workers can help figure that out. It may also be in the best interest of the employee to seek out legal advise. The assistance of a QRC (qualified rehabilitation consultant) is highly recommended.
The Hey Workers website has a page titled "worker's rights" that is a good resource for knowing your rights in Minnesota. Hey Workers is a network of doctors, attorneys, chiropractors, and QRC firms in the Minneapolis, St. Paul areas that can help answer questions about a work comp injury or claim. Common injuries include: shoulder, knee or most commonly back injuries. The call is free and the consultation is confidential. Call 844-Hey-Workers or visit the website to find out more.
