I'm Attorney Andre' Ramsay, your workers' compensation attorney.
Today I will answer - how soon should you get to the doctor?
If you need medical treatment, don't wait.
It's not about us being your lawyer and you being our client - it's about you being a person to us first. If you need medical treatment, don't wait! because your family needs you.
First thing you should do:
- Contact your employer, inform them of your injury and ask them to go see a workers' compensation doctor.
If you need emergency services, then simply go to the emergency room. I've had clients who have had the ambulance come and pick them up and take them to the hospital.
Your health and well being means more than following our legal advice. If you are seriously injured, get treatment immediately.
Don't wait. Go immediately to the emergency room or go to the workers' compensation doctor as soon as possible. If you need to, go see your personal primary care physician, but always go first to either the emergency room or to the workers' compensation doctors.
Again, I am Andre' Ramsay, the lawyer for the everyday worker.
