Medical Benefits You Can Expect From Workers' Compensation

If you have been injured on the job, you may feel like you are now left out in the cold with no income to pay your bills and keep a roof over your head, let alone cover the medical bills that are piling up from your injury. Your employer or co-workers may have even told you there is nothing you can do. This is wrong.

If you have suffered a job-related injury and made your employer aware of it, you are entitled to all reasonable, necessary and related medical care. This does not mean the workers' compensation insurance company will allow you to do so without being forced. That is why it is so crucial to have an experienced workers' compensation lawyer on your side.

What Types Of Medical Benefits Are Available?

Generally, you are required to initially treat with a panel physician listed by your employer. However, under certain circumstances you can obtain treatment from a doctor you choose, not one chosen by your employer or insurance company.

Once your workers' compensation claim is accepted, your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier will be responsible for paying for all medical care expenses such as:

  • Surgeries
  • Physical therapy
  • Home and vehicle modifications
  • Rehabilitation
  • Doctor appointments
  • Emergency room visits
  • Hospitalization
  • In-home care
  • Other expenses

Our Allentown medical benefits lawyers can help you obtain the medical benefits you deserve for your work-related injury. We understand how the workers' compensation process is managed and can assist you in resolving crucial issues as they arise or even heading them off before they appear, or stop them after they appear.

It is not uncommon for insurance companies to dispute claims or make efforts to minimize their responsibility in these cases. We know the games they play and have what it takes to win. We will take your case to trial if necessary and our opponents in the insurance industry know we mean business.
