What do I do if I get injured on the job?

The first thing to do is to notify your employer. The employer has limited time to report the accident to the worker’ compensation insurance and the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers’ Compensation.

Workers’ Comp Essentials For the Injured Employee

1) Every dental workers’ comp case involves impact to the mouth. A chipped tooth is the most common reason we see an employee come in. It takes up to three months for symptoms to be show on x-rays and for us to determine the full extent of the injury.

2) A workers’ comp injury is covered for life. If a filling fails due to wear and tear, then workers’ comp will pay for a crown. If that crown fails 20 years later, then workers’ comp will pay for an implant.

3) If you have a workers’ comp injury, you MUST utilize the workers’ comp system. Paying out-of-pocket now may lead to a very costly bills in your future.

Workers’ Comp Essentials For the Employer

1) Once the employee reports the injury to you, you have a finite number of time to report the injury to your workers’ comp carrier.

2) Filing to workers’ comp shields you from all legal liability resulting from this injury. An employee has no power to sue. Do not try to pay for dental treatments directly to avoid the paperwork involved in workers’ comp. Symptoms of dental injury may take many months to develop and show on x-rays. Don’t get stuck paying huge bills for your employee for the rest of his life.

What’s the next step?

Choosing the right clinic is important. Workers’ comp has different rules, depending on the state. We know the Texas procedures and rules well. We scan the entire mouth and jaw to determine the full extent of the injury.
