Notifying Your Employer About A Work Injury

If you get injured on the job, make sure to notify your employer right away. If there is a handbook, follow the guidelines for reporting an injury. If there is no handbook, try to find someone in a management position. Always fill out an incident report. Try to be as descriptive as possible and list all of the body parts you injured, not just the injury that hurts the most. If your employer fills out the incident report for you, make sure you get to see a copy. If it is wrong, then write a letter explaining what is wrong with the report. For more information on Notifying Your Employer About A Work Injury email Jason Krasno at jkrasno@krasno.com or call Toll Free to 1800 952 9640.

Degenerative Disc Disease and the Injured Worker

How many injured workers get this response from the workers' compensation insurance carrier: "You have degenerative disc disease (DDD) in your spine and we are not responsible for it." Claims Adjusters and Nurse Case Managers follow a certain protocol when dealing with degenerative disc disease and other types of arthritis, DENY DENY DENY. The real fact is that degenerative disc disease is something that occurs overtime or advances with strenuous activity as we get older. 90% of the population has some form of DDD but this condition is not always painful. If you get injured on the job and never had back pain before, then chances are you aggravated that underlying DDD. If you get injured on the job and did have issues with back pain but the job injury made it much worse, then chances are you aggravated the underlying DDD. If you would like a more detailed explanation, please call Jason Krasno. Jason has litigated hundreds of these cases and consulted with some of the leading spine surgeons and physiatrists in Pennsylvania.

Marcellus Shale Drilling: How To Find Proper Medical Care When You Get Injured

Workers involved in the shale drilling industry in Pennsylvania are finding it increasingly difficult to find appropriate medical care in the states in which they live. The work schedule of two weeks on and two weeks off means that at some point you will probably go back to the state in which you live. Non-Pennsylvania doctors who will treat you may be scared by out of state insurance issues. Jason Krasno has helped a number of injured shale drilling workers get the medical care they need. If you are running into this issue or similar issues, please give Jason Krasno a call so he can walk you through the process.
