Read our reviews and be sure to book your appointment online today.
Always tell your orthopedic team if you were injured on the job. It doesn’t matter if it’s a repetitive stress injury like carpal tunnel syndrome, related to an existing condition (and the work-related incident worsened it), if you don’t plan to take time off from work, or if you haven’t told your employer yet. Mend Clinic needs to know if you suffered an orthopedic injury on the job because you’ll need to complete a Form-827. Your patient care coordinator will help you with this document before you leave Mend Clinic.
Workers’ Compensation Form-827 is a multi-page document for both the patient and the healthcare provider at Mend Clinic (and any other providers you see or are referred to as part of this claim). Mend Clinic will submit the form for you, but it’s very important that you provide correct employer information and your social security number. Completing Form-827 is a key part of starting a worker’s compensation claim. If you haven’t given your employer written documentation about the injury yet, it’s a good idea to consult with a workers’ compensation attorney immediately and inform your employer about the injury as soon as possible.
