Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle cases

Our practice is happy to look after cases involving Workers Compensation and Motor Vehicle insurance. There are special considerations that apply in these cases.

If we are planning surgery, the insurance company needs to agree to fund the procedure. This can involve further consultation and on occasion second opinions from other specialists.

There is often a complex process of return to work planning in workers compensation cases. This may involve multiple forms and paperwork. We recommend all workers compensation patients have a case conference one month after surgery. This can be attended by the return to work coordinator. This will ensure that all paperwork and return to work plans are completed quickly.
