Workers Compensation Q & A

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation covers your medical expenses if you suffer an injury on the job or develop a chronic health condition due to your job duties. You might also receive part of your wages while you heal, disability payments, and rehabilitation costs.

You’re automatically protected and can get the care you need because your employer pays for workers’ compensation. 

What injuries qualify for workers’ compensation?

Some occupations clearly pose a higher risk of injuries, but you can sustain a work-related injury in every environment, including in an office. 

Every type of job-related injury is covered by workers’ compensation. However, a few of the most common injuries include:

  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Being struck by an object
  • Accidents caused by tools
  • Car and truck accidents
  • Repetitive use injuries
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Crush injuries
  • Heavy lifting 

Some illnesses may also qualify for workers’ compensation. For example, you might develop nerve damage from exposure to toxins or lung disease after years of inhaling dust or chemicals on the job.

How does radiology fit with workers’ compensation?

Many people need diagnostic imaging to identify the type and extent of their injury. The information obtained from an MRI or X-ray is essential for getting the workers’ compensation insurance company to approve your claim and pay your medical bills.

You also need high-quality imaging from All County Radiology to support many other workers’ compensation decisions, including whether you’re getting the proper treatment, if you’re fit to work, when you can return to work, and if you might need rehabilitation.

What other services support workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation cases require prompt and accurate medical reporting. The insurance provider may deny your claim if they don’t receive your reports on time or the report doesn’t include the required information.

Beyond providing the highest quality imaging at their fully accredited facility, the All County Radiology providers are experts in all aspects of workers’ compensation. They meet deadlines for submitting paperwork and completing thorough reports, providing the information attorneys need to litigate claims when needed.
