When should I schedule a workers’ compensation consultation?

Any time you’re injured at work, it’s important that you let your supervisor know immediately and then seek medical care.

The Ledesma Foot and Ankle team recommends that you schedule a consultation soon after your workplace accident, even if you’re not having pain or other symptoms. Some foot and ankle injuries may not cause symptoms right away, but the injury can quickly worsen without prompt medical care.

During your diagnostic evaluation, your podiatrist physically examines your foot or ankle for signs of injury and tests your range of motion. They may order X-rays or other imaging tests to confirm your diagnosis.

Based on your test results, the team customizes a treatment plan to heal injured tissue or bone. They carefully document your treatment, giving you the information you need for a workers’ compensation claim. The podiatrists also help you schedule follow-up visits to monitor your success with treatment.
