Hurt at work …. Know your rights ! WSIB INJURY OAVKILLE
Oakville WSIB Treatment
Most professionals in Ontario from construction workers to teachers are covered by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board aka WSIB. The WSIB protects the worker from any injuries sustained in the work environment. At Oakville’s most highly rated WSIB clinic, slips and falls, chronic computer use and car accidents while at work are all situations we deal with on a regular basis. The most important value to take from this blog is that if you are injured at work tell your employer right away. Forms will be filled, feelings might get hurt, but in the long run this is best for both you as a patient and your work as a company. If the injury is severe the injured person should seek the advice of their medical doctor or go to hospital.
At Nottinghill Family Wellness Centre in Oakville, most WSIB cases are strains and sprains and the occasional tear or herniation. No matter what the injury, treatment should be sought as close to the day of injury as possible. Not only does this allow you to get better faster but it also provides a nice and tidy timeline for WSIB to approve your claim.
Need a note to take time off work due to your injury? We can do that too. We will work with both WSIB and your employer to ensure a safe return to work with little to no out of pocket expense to you as a patient.
Worried about paychecks during your time of need? Legally you can work full time regular duties and still get treatment for your injury. Don’t think you can go to work but need a paycheck? We can assign modified duties or even modify your work hours to help get you back on your feet and pain free.
Don’t Wait! If you are hurt at work tell your employer, fill out FORM 7 and call 905-827-4197 to book your appointment today!
