Injuries sustained on the job often require immediate medical attention. At Coastal Urgent Care, we provide fast, efficient workplace injury treatment and make the often confusing workers’ compensation process run more smoothly for both employees and employers. We strive to make the workers’ comp process less stressful so you can focus on healing and get back to work as soon as possible.

For Employees

Our patients’ well-being is a top priority. Our experienced team of physicians and health care professionals treats all types of workplace injuries, from broken bones to chemical exposure. In New Jersey, employers are required to provide medical care for workers who are injured on the job. Workers’ compensation insurance typically pays medical bills and some lost wages to employees who are injured at work or who have work-related diseases or illnesses.

Knowing what to do after you’ve been injured at work can be daunting. Coastal Urgent Care not only provides top-notch medical care, we make it easier for you to recover by helping you navigate the workers’ compensation system. We work with you, your employer and their insurance company to ensure you get the care you need and are well-versed in following proper procedure for workers’ comp claims. Some common workplace injuries we treat include:

  • Slip, trip and fall injuries like sprains, strains and broken bones
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Burns
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Foreign body removal
  • Injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents
  • Toxic substances and chemical exposure

It’s important to note that under New Jersey workers’ compensation law, your employer or their insurance carrier has the right to choose your health care provider for treatment of workplace injuries or illnesses. If you need more extensive, continued care for your injury, we make sure to refer you to a health care provider that’s approved by your employer.
