Medical Treatment for Injured City Carrier Assistants

When you’re injured as a city carrier assistant, the Postal Service may elect to take you to its doctor for a medical exam. That being said, please keep in mind that you have the right to choose your treating doctor after the exam so you’re sure your medical report is written objectively and submitted to the powers that be only after we take a look at it to advise on whether or not the report will hinder your ability to seek compensation for an injury in the future. The reality is that postal worker injuries tend to recur or become complicated, involving other body parts; it is for this reason that you must have an excellent medical report so there are no attempts to have you extracted from postal workers’ compensation in the future.

Which Forms Should You Fill?

As long as your injury as a city carrier assistant is caused by a work condition or event, you’re eligible for compensation. Don’t hesitate when it comes to filling in the CA-1 form as delaying may be seen as your having suffered an injury that isn’t as serious as to require ongoing compensation. If, on the other hand, you fell ill or contracted an occupational disease over a period of more than one work day, you’ll be required to fill in form CA-2. Lastly, please don’t feel like your claim won’t be taken seriously or will be tossed out just because you haven’t reached the 90/120 day threshold – postal worker compensation is an inalienable legal right that you have access to in order to get the medical treatment and compensation you need to take care of your daily needs as you rest and take time off work to get better.
