Falls, loss of body parts, head injuries and other traumatic injuries can be very difficult to treat and are often life-changing for workers and their families. When you or a loved one has been seriously injured at work, working with a skilled and experienced lawyer can ensure that you are treated with the respect, compassion and care you deserve now and in the future.
Workplace accidents can result in traumatic injuries that can be not only life-changing, but very painful and expensive. It is important to recognize that you have rights and that there are certain issues to address before having surgery after a work injury.
Preparing For A Doctor’s Appointment
Our attorneys at the law office of Cori-Lynn S. Webber, LLC, can help you understand the workers’ compensation system, your rights and how your case will be handled. We can help you prepare for doctors’ appointments by educating you about your legal options and what to discuss with your doctor before making any decisions.
Pain is different for every individual and can significantly impact your entire life. Discussing with your doctor what you mean when you say you are in pain and how you are actually feeling is a great starting point to determine the type of treatment you need and your options for recovery.

- What kind of surgery is needed?
