At CenTex Spine & Rehab in Waco, TX, we treat our patients' personal injuries. As it can sometimes be difficult to completely avoid accidents in the workplace, especially if your job is physical in nature, we want to make sure that everyone in the Waco area has access to not only healthcare services, but also the compensation they deserve. An accident can incapacitate someone, confine him to a wheelchair, or even cause his death. With the OWCP Federal Workers Compensation law, you’ll be duly compensated for accidents on the job.
According to the law, if you sustain any injury while doing your job or anything related to your job, you will be compensated. If you contract a disease through your job, you’ll be compensated as well. Also, if you encounter an accident and lose your life while doing your job, your dependents will receive the benefits.
At CenTex Spine & Rehab, part of the services we offer is taking care of OWCP claims.
