Personal Injury Q & A

What should I do if I’m injured at work?

If you sustain an injury at work, you should immediately report your injury to your boss or another superior. Your workplace may require you to fill out specific paperwork or bring in a doctor’s note outlining your injury and its severity.

When should I seek treatment for a workplace injury?

You should seek treatment for any workplace injury as soon as possible. In most states, it’s best to seek care within 30 days of your injury. This allows Dr. Buberman to examine and assess your injury while it is still in the acute phase and determine the extent of treatment you’ll need in order to recover.

This also allows you to begin care as soon as possible, which decreases your recovery time and often reduces the risk of developing chronic pain or disability related to your injury. Dr. Buberman performs thorough exams and offers a range of treatment options to address your unique situation.

What is the difference between personal and workers’ compensation injuries?

While personal and workers’ compensation injuries are both types of work-related injuries, personal injuries involve some form of negligence that leads to your injury. This may include cords lying on the floor that you could trip over or not removing snow from a walkway that you use for work purposes that causes you to slip and fall.

Dr. Buberman works with attorneys and insurance adjusters to determine if anyone is at fault for your injury. If so, Dr. Buberman makes sure to provide the appropriate documentation, so you receive financial compensation from your personal injury case to cover your medical treatment bills.

What types of treatments are available for personal injuries?

Dr. Buberman offers a comprehensive list of treatments for personal injuries, including:

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Hot and cold therapy
  • Soft tissue therapy
  • Electrical nerve stimulation and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Therapeutic ultrasound
  • Rehabilitation

Based on your diagnosis, Dr. Buberman determines which treatment approaches are best for your condition. He discusses these options with you to develop a treatment strategy and help you recover as quickly as possible.
