Workers Compensation Claims | Occupational Disease Claims | Brooklyn

After you have suffered a workplace injury, it is crucial to seek medical attention, even if you do not feel that you have seriously been injured. A doctor’s report immediately following your injury is the important first step in your successful claim for compensation benefits. It is essential that you see a doctor that is certified by New York State to treat Workers’ Compensation patients. If you go to a non-certified doctor, your Workers’ Compensation may be invalid. The most important element to your compensation claim is your doctor’s report. These reports will be filed with your insurance company and the Workers’ Compensation Board after each visit. Always make sure that you have updated reports from your doctor before any hearing. Regular treatment is important in establishing your case and getting you paid.

To receive workers’ compensation benefits, an employee must prove that there is or was an injury, illness or disability arising out of and in the course of employment, and that adequate notice to the employer was given. Please note that even if you do not file a compensation claim immediately, you may do so up to two years after your accident. That is why it is important to always let your doctor know the cause of your injury. In order to establish a case, the injured worker must have a medical report stating that a work-related accident or condition was the cause of the injury, illness or disability. Without a medical report stating this, the Workers’ Compensation Board will not consider the case.

Occupational Diseases

Occupational diseases are also covered by workers’ compensation. An occupational disease is a condition which is caused by the specific type of job over a period of time. An example of an occupational disease is a wrist injury due to long term computer use. If your disability prevents you from working, you must see a Workers’ Compensation Certified doctor on a regular basis. Disability can only be proved with medical reports.

Remember, you can be treated for injuries sustained at work at no cost and be paid for your time out from work as long as proper documentation is provided. Even when you return to work, you can still receive treatment free, as long as the “paper work” has been done properly. Dr. Mollins and all of his referred medical specialists are certified to treat Workers’ Compensation patients and they are meticulous with all documentation so that every person injured at work will receive proper compensation as expeditiously as possible. Dr. Mollins’ goal in treating injured workers is to get that patient back to good health and back to work as soon as possible. In the meantime, accurate and timely documentation will enable that patient to receive proper compensation.

  • Dr. Mollin’s was great! I have not seen a chiropractor for almost a year and recent accidents have left me in way too much pain. I decided to go with him for convenience sake because he is on the way between home and work. I’m very glad I did because he was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. He knows just where to help me and has done great so far. I look forward to making him my regular chiropractor.

    Jessica R.
  • Very knowledgeable and fantastic bedside manner.

    Nicole S.
  • What can I say, great doc – competent, has a personality, gets the job done + he’s a Yankees fan; the bonus, for a busy person like myself, I am seen within 5 mins of apt time…priceless…..a big win, since I hate docs that make you wait 30-45 mins to see them.

    Kirk M.
  • I think I’m in love, he was the best chiropractor I have ever had. He knows exactly what needs to be done. my appointment was 9:15, i was in his office @ 9:16 that alone makes you want to come back. I didn’t want it to end.

    Michael N.
  • I am never disappointed in Jeff’s service. He is a truly great man.

    Bobby K.
  • I’ve seen several chiropractors over the years, and it’s obvious when they’re just in the business to squeeze as much money out of their clients as possible by requiring visits every few days (for minor ailments). Dr. Mollins was excellent in this regard. He acknowledged that I was in minor pain and said he could help, but suggested I come in again whenever I’d like to. I really appreciated the lack of pressure. But most of all, I liked the treatment. I felt like a million bucks after my adjustment. Highly recommended!

    Emily B.
  • A notification over phone or email that they only take cash or checks would be great, prior to appointment visit.

    Tony V.
  • Dr Jeff Mollins is unlike any casual Chiropractor. There are professionals that simply go about their life committing to their job as an obligation rather than an interest. Dr Jeff Mollins is genuinely interested in his patients as a friend looks out for another friend. I’ve had neck and upper back pain for as long as I remember. But Dr Jeff Mollins was able to identify my issues and help walk me through what he was going to do to tackle the issue. I felt aware and comfortable. I had some slight pain on my left shoulder an hour after my appointment due to the major adjustments that had been made to my spine. I called Dr Jeff Mollins and he helped me right away and even emailed me to check up on me again. Dr Jeff Mollins goes above and beyond to guarantee the satisfaction of his patients and I got all of this from only one visit! Definitely looking forward to visit Dr Jeff Mollins office again and I highly recommend him.
