  • Seek medical attention

If there's a life-threatening emergency, seek medical attention immediately! If your injury is a sprain, strain or soreness, which is commonly a soft-tissue, musculoskeletal, injury, make an appointment today. NW Chiropractic Care of Sherwood offers chiropractic services and therapies, addressing the symptoms of many health issues beyond back and neck pain.  

Remember: Even for work-related injuries, you can select your own physician, rather than be treated by an insurer-recommended provider.  

  • Make a report

The sooner you document the circumstances of what occurred, the more likely that your claim for an injury will be honored. You should report the injury to your employer, if the injury occurred while you were working. In the event of a traffic-related accident or slip and fall, you should report it to the local police department and to the negligent party or the insurer, if known.  

  •  Get professional advice

If you're unable to work and you're struggling to pay your household bills, you may need to consult an attorney to get advice on securing funds to cover your lost wages and medical bills in the fastest way possible.
