How are these cases typically handled? How do doctors determine whether someone is really injured, whether they were injured at work, and how serious the injury was?

Work injuries impact virtually every industry on the planet, including yours. This topic will provide a summary of how doctors evaluate workers' compensation medical issues ranging from disputes over medical treatment to whether a work injury even occurred.
