Injured On the Job
The knowledgeable doctors and staff at Orthopedic Associates of West Jersey (OAWJ) know that early diagnosis and prompt treatment of injuries are key to returning workers to the job as soon as possible. At OAWJ, we focus on doing just that, helping to reduce medical costs and time lost from work.
We have extensive experience with workers’ compensation cases, providing expert orthopedic medical care to injured workers, while keeping employers and insurance carriers apprised of treatment and recovery progress.
This is particularly helpful in New Jersey, where the state’s workers’ compensation program is “no-fault” – meaning an injured worker can receive medical or disability benefits regardless of who was at fault.
OAWJ’s top-notch orthopedic medical team includes Dr. Louis Bouillon, who is authorized by the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners to conduct unbiased, independent medical examinations (IME) of patients involved in workers’ compensation or other liability-associated matters. His certification assures that all parties benefit from his knowledge, skill, and experience with IMEs.
If you are an employer or case manager and would like to learn how we can treat your employees’ work injuries and make the process as seamless as possible, give us a call at (973) 989-0888. The friendly, experienced team at Orthopedic Associates of West Jersey stands ready to help you.
