When hurt at work, one is entitled to, at a minimum, wage loss and medical are. Certainly that includes evaluation, and treatment if necessary by a medical professional. injured workers are entitled to receive surgical, and other such care an attendance as required by the process of recuperation and the nature of their injury,

Services like nursing, hospitalization, medicines and prosthetics are provided under appropriate circumstances.
