Acceptance of a new injury claim

Whenever you are applying for a new OWCP work injury claim, it is very important that your doctor provides you with sound medical rationale to support your claim.

Medical rationale can vary greatly depending on the type of injury you have sustained. There are 4 major types of cause recognized by OWCP: Direct Cause, Aggravation, Acceleration, and Precipitation.

Your doctor’s ability to relate your symptoms through one of those types of cause is extremely important. Just because you suffer from a condition does not mean that OWCP will accept your claim. That is why¬†seeing a federal doctor who understands how to establish your cause of injury is so important.

Your doctor can tell if your injury is work related, but they may not know how to portray that to the OWCP. FedDoctor.com helps to connect you with talented medical providers that can help you with both.
