Immediate treatment can help prevent long-term problems

Perhaps you are one of those people who absolutely hates to miss work. Your ethic is such that you will report to the job on time, every day, ready to get things done. It is also quite possible that you know just how vital a role you play at your place of employment. This is to be expected as the best workers typically have the most responsibilities and are the ones other workers depend on.

So, if you should ever get hurt while on the job, your tendency may be to soldier through the pain and not let on that you are suffering. And while this may be an admirable course to take, it could also be a big mistake. The fact is, some injuries require treatment and a period of convalescence.

Back injuries can be particularly deceptive. It is possible to strain your back, but remain functional and keep working. The problem is that while you are doing this, you may be doing long-term damage that could affect your ability to work in the future. The same thing goes for injuries to the neck, knees, shoulders and other body parts that play a role in your tasks. If you try to "push through the pain," you could end up elevating a treatable injury to a permanent, debilitating condition.

This is why when you are injured at work it is best to have a doctor give you an examination and diagnosis. And thanks to New York's workers' compensation program you can have your expenses covered. You could even receive a measure of your pay if you need to take some time off for recovery.

At Angiuli & Gentile, we can act on your behalf to help ensure you get the benefits to which you are entitled. We have aided thousands of clients from a wide variety of professions successfully get the medical treatment, lost wages and rehabilitation they needed. You don't have to suffer in silence with a work-related injury and we would be interested in helping you get the benefits you deserve.
