An Apology for Doctors Not Understanding Federal Workers Compensation.
As a Professor of Legal Medicine I teach doctors, lawyers and advocates all over the nation. Many physicians are reluctant to become involved in their patient’s injury claims especially, injured Federal Workers. Many doctors and lawyers have told me, “I did one Fed Work Comp and I will never do another!”
This reluctance is due to the lack of Legal Medicine training in medical schools and of office staffs not being trained in how to be reimbursed in Federal Workers’ Compensation.
AGAINST INJURED WORKERS
In addition to the complexities of Federal Workers’ Compensation there is a subconscious bias against people who are injured and find themselves having to file an injury claim. However, numerous medical studies show that the majority of injured workers are very legitimate. Many are reluctant to complain because they do not want to be thought of as malingering or asking for more than they deserve. This bias and antagonism against injured workers causes changes in the brain and retards healing.
We at Ellis Clinic are trained to treat each injured employee with fairness, objectivity and compassion. We Want to help.
