Workers’ Comp For Shoulder And Wrist Injuries
If you work in central or southwestern Missouri and have suffered an injury to your shoulder or elbow, either in a workplace accident or because of repetitive stress on the job, you should report within 30 days the medical problem to your employer. Your employer will then assign you a preferred certified workers’ compensation doctor. Your assigned doctor will then make a formal diagnosis and prescribe a treatment plan.
As part of the diagnosis, your doctor will also certify that you are unable to work due to a temporary or permanent disability, or that you may return to work with restrictions to light duty, or return to work as normal. Regardless, you may have certain rights that the doctor does not address.
