Workers Compensation Information at Mathur Spine Surgery

Have you been injured on the job? If so, you have come to the right place. Dr. Sameer Mathur specializes in the treatment of workers’ compensation patients and is committed to getting you back on the job in as little time as possible.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a special type of insurance that was created to protect injured employees who are unable to perform their duties from losing income as a result of a work-related injury. In many cases, workers compensation benefits will pay for medical expenses related to the injury as well as a portion of lost wages due to the inability to work.

How Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation?

In order to take advantage of workers’ comp benefits, a claim must first be filed along with proper documentation. Many times a physician’s report, known as an independent medical examination, is needed in order for the claim to be processed. Dr. Mathur not only offers this service to his patients, he has a clinical team dedicated to coordinating care for workers’ compensation patients, streamlining the process and making it simpler for all parties.
