  • Overexertion injuries, such as a muscle strain or ligament sprain
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Electrocution
  • Struck by or against an object
  • Transportation incidents, such as an auto accident when driving for business

Dr. Buberman evaluates your injury to determine if chiropractic care or rehabilitation treatments are appropriate for your needs. Dr. Buberman manages all types of neurological and musculoskeletal injuries and can provide referrals to other specialists if additional care is needed.

When should I report a workers’ compensation injury?

According to workers’ compensation laws, workplace injuries should be reported to your employer within 30 days. It is best to seek treatment from Dr. Buberman within 30 days, or sooner, whenever possible. The earlier your injury is examined and you begin treatment, the sooner you can recover.

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

The main differences between workers’ compensation and personal injuries are the fault requirements and types of compensation available. In a workers’ compensation case, no fault is needed in order to receive compensation. This is why many workers’ compensation injuries are considered accidents.

Financial compensation for workers’ compensation includes coverage for medical treatments, vocational rehabilitation, wage replacement, and some additional benefits, depending on your workers’ compensation insurance.

Dr. Buberman offers complete medical care for musculoskeletal complaints and many types of neurological injuries. He works with claims adjusters to ensure that all the necessary documentation and paperwork are taken care of so you don’t have to worry about paying out-of-pocket for your care.
