You Can Trust OHOW to Help with Your Work Injury
If you have been hurt while on the job, you are likely experiencing worry and fear – in addition to pain from the injury itself. At the Orthopaedic Hospital of Wisconsin (OHOW), our goal is to make you feel the best you can in every way. You’ll receive unusually compassionate care from our staff.
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers compensation (workers comp for short) is specialty insurance designed to protect you from losing income in the event you incur a work-related injury. To collect your benefits after you’ve been injured, you must file a claim and provide a physician’s report. The compensation claim often covers medical expenses related to the injury as well as lost income replacement. Contact your employer for more information.
