Have you suffered an injury at your place of employment?
What happens if you are injured at work? Which doctor would you go to? Who would pay the bills? Would you get fired? Most people go to work each day not thinking about these questions, but when an injury happens at work it can be a very difficult and sometimes life changing experience. The difference between getting the proper medical care and receiving all of your benefits can come down to the decisions you make as soon as the injury happens.

You also may be entitled to: Temporary Disability Benefits. Payments if you lose wages because your injury prevents you from doing your usual job while recovering. Permanent Disability Benefits. Payments if you don’t recover completely and your injury causes a permanent loss of physical or mental function that a doctor can measure.
Appointments with the Doctores Y Mas network of medical doctors, specialists, chiropractors, physical therapists and diagnostic facilities are usually available on the same day to get our patients in quickly without unnecessary delay.
What should you do if you are injured at work?
- You should inform your employer as soon as possible about your injury. Any delay in the notice can delay the payment of benefits.
- See a doctor for an evaluation as soon as you are able. If it is an emergency go to the ER or Urgent Care directly.
What should your employer do?
- Provide all necessary first aid and medical services
- inform the insurance carrier or worker’s compensation carrier
- if the employee cannot work for more than three days because of the injury, the employer must:
- Begin payments of TTD; or
- Give the employee a written explanation of the additional information the employer needs before it will begin payments; or
- Give the employee a written explanation of why benefits are being denied

Make sure to choose a doctor who will put your needs first!
Unfortunately some injured workers receive only minimal care from a workers’ compensation “company” doctor where they are sent after getting hurt. Patients complain that the company doctor doesn’t seem to care about them, makes them wait hours for an appointment, and quickly releases from care when they are still in pain, or with the excuse that the pain is caused by a degenerative condition or arthritic changes which are not work-related.
The most important thing you can do is to provide an honest account of your injury and of your symptoms on every visit. Then find a doctor who is a patient-first advocate and has only your best interests in mind. Doctores Y Mas always places our patients first and we know that every patient who comes to see us has their own story to tell. Because of our extensive experience in helping so many patients with work injuries and our patient-centered approach, Doctores Y Mas has become the trusted name in Chicago. Our patients trust our ability to provide the best medical care in their times of need and to make sure everything will be taken care of. This is where the ‘Mas’ in Doctores Y Mas fits in. We go beyond providing great care and take care of the individual details that make the difference.
If you have suffered on the job injury or if you are dealing with pain or issues of any kind, Doctores Y Mas can help. We will work with you to help develop a plan to treat your condition and help get you the benefits you deserve.
