After being injured in an accident at work, you’ll need medical care. Whether you need stitches for a deep cut or surgery and extended hospitalization, medical care is the first thing to seek.
Workers’ compensation is designed to provide immediate medical benefits for injured employees; however, there are a few obstacles to getting the care coverage you need. You may be required to see a physician of your employer’s choosing. Or, you may be denied benefits altogether and have to file an appeal. Meanwhile, you still require medical care, so many families end up in a financial crisis after severe on-the-job injuries.
At our workers’ compensation law firm, we understand how vital medical benefits are after a work-related injury. You may need continuing medical care, including regular follow-ups with your physician, medications, physical therapy, and more. Employees injured in the course of their job shouldn’t be responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars of medical bills. In fact, our lawyers are dedicated to helping victims and their families get the medical benefits they need.
If you or a loved one were injured at work, don’t wait to obtain legal representation. While some people file for and receive workers’ comp benefits on their own, much more are denied the benefits they deserve for frivolous reasons. We can help ensure that your accident form and workers’ compensation application is filled out properly. Additionally, we can communicate with insurance companies on your behalf. With our firm on your side, you can focus on healing from your injuries and adjust to a new way of life.
