Federal Employee Work Injuries:Â Federal employees face the same injury risks as those in the private industry and different areas of the public sector. A federal worker who suffers a job-related private injury or illness can seek benefits through the Federal Employeesâ€™ Compensation Act (FECA).
TheÂ Federal Employees‘ Compensation Act (FECA) is administered by the U.S. Department of Labor, Office ofÂ Workers‘ Compensation Programs (OWCP). Benefits include continuation of pay for traumaticÂ injuries, compensation for wage loss, medical care and other assistance forÂ job-relatedÂ injuryÂ or death. These benefits include coverage of wages that are lost because of permanent or temporary disability.
It can be difficult for people who have never before applied to document a federal workersâ€™ compensation or disability benefits claim. Various experts will allow federal employees to sort through the confusion and work to pursue the advantages or reimbursement they deserve. Dr. Alex Jimenez informs the public about these issues, directing them to the proper specialists.Â For Answers to any questions you may have please call Dr. Jimenez atÂ 915-850-0900
