Worker's Compensation Q&A

Do you take workers’ compensation cases?

Yes, Tri-State Specialists has a great deal of experience helping people who experience injuries in the course of their work. 

The entire team at Tri-State Specialists handles workers’ compensation claims, helping the injured employee get the care they need while protecting the employer and ensuring the insurance provider gets all of the information they need to process and cover the resulting claims. 

The team’s priority is helping the employee heal through the most conservative treatments possible. Not only does this minimize costs for the insurer, helping the employer keep their premiums low, but it also serves the employee. 

A conservative treatment approach means the employee can try things that are likely to be effective without requiring procedures that could cause additional pain or necessitate lengthy recovery processes. 

Essentially, Tri-State Specialists starts the employee with the least invasive treatment that’s most likely to support their healing, like physical therapy. If that’s ineffective, they can move on together, exploring additional treatments like minimally invasive surgery. 

Because Tri-State Specialists offers everything from basic physical therapy to specialized surgery in-house, in most cases, they can handle the entire workers’ compensation case themselves. 


What types of workers’ comp cases can receive treatment?

Tri-State Specialists serves patients with musculoskeletal injuries for workers’ comp claims. That means they treat injured joints, strained and sprained muscles, torn ligaments, or another orthopaedic injury.
