Workers’ Compensation is a term used by the State, your employer, and your doctor to describe the process of care to be taken when you are injured at work. This is much different than an injury from a sport or leisure activity. When you are injured at work from a fall, lifting or over-exertion, the first step is to report it to your supervisor. Your human resources department will produce Workers’ Compensation papers that you and your employer sign, then bring to Dr. West, starting a claim with your employer’s insurance company. Dr. West is appointed by the State as a Qualified Medical Examiner (QME) and an Industrial Disabilities Examiner (IDE) to do a comprehensive examination and treatment that is specific to your injuries. Chiropractic Family Care will attempt to treat you so that you may return to work as soon as possible.
