Workers compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment. Automobile insurance covers patients for evaluation and treatment after car injuries – automobile accidents. When you are injured at work, you should report your injury to your employer as quickly as possible. Whether you have a workers compensation claim or a car injury – auto accident, you should start medical treatment right away.
The rules for getting treatment through a workers compensation doctor depend on what state you live in. Most injured workers in the state of Washington can choose their own doctor through LNI (L&I). In some instances, your employer may send you to their own workers compensation doctor or clinic. In the case of car injury – automobile accidents, you can choose your own doctor. When you have been injured on the job and file a workers compensation claim or have a car injury – automobile accident, Dr. Williams can perform your medical examination to verify your injury, determine the severity of the injury, evaluate your post-injury medical or physical condition, and recommend a course of treatment.
Most workers compensation injuries and car injury – automobile accidents respond well to osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Getting a workers compensation or car injury – auto accident doctor is very important to your recovery. Dr. Williams uses OMT on his workers compensation and car injury – auto accident patients.
You do not need prior authorization to be evaluated by Dr. Williams for a workers compensation injury and open a claim. Automobile insurances usually will authorize your initial evaluation when requested by Dr. Williams.
Treatment of a workers compensation claim requires authorization which is usually granted when osteopathic manipulative treatment is requested and treatment for car injuries – auto accidents treatment with OMT is usually granted upon request.
