If you’ve been injured in the workplace, your employer has probably referred you to a workers’ compensation doctor. But what if that doctor tells you there’s nothing wrong with you? Is that true? Do you need a second opinion? Many injured workers don’t realize they have options, and they can push back against employers and doctors that insist there’s no injury and no workers’ compensation claim. It’s common for this to happen, and you don’t have to deal with an injury without compensation.

Get a Second Opinion

The best thing you can do for your workers’ compensation claim is getting a second opinion from a doctor that’s part of your Medical Provider Network (MPN). You’ll have a list of those doctors through your insurance company, and you can go to the one you choose. You can even see more than one if you want a different opinion about the scope and severity of your injury. In short, don’t take no for an answer when you know something is wrong. It’s important to advocate for yourself.

Get the Right Diagnosis

The diagnosis you receive matters regarding the type of compensation you receive for your workplace injury. By working closely with your doctor and getting a second opinion if necessary, you can feel confident that you’re adequately diagnosed. Look for doctors in your MPN who have experience with your type of injury. You want the medical professionals who will take you seriously, so you can get the right treatment plan, heal from your injury and get back to work again.

Get Fair and Just Compensation

While healing from a workplace injury is significant, it’s not just the healing that matters. It’s also making sure you’re being compensated for the time you have to be away from work. Every case, injury, MPN and insurance company is different. Working through the required steps is the right way to go about being compensated for your injury. But if you find that your claims are getting denied, or you’re being told there’s nothing wrong, reaching out for legal help and support is a great option.
