Our job is helping injured workers get back to theirs

Studies show that the longer an employee is off work, the lower their chances of resuming work. So, let us help you put a program in place that gets your injured employee back to work healthy, safe and as quickly as possible.
Did you know:
Injured employees who don't miss any work have the best chance of a full recovery
Those who miss more than six months of work have about a 50 percent chance of getting back to their job
Missing more than one year means their chance of resuming work drops to 25 percent
