If you are injured at work or if you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, you may be entitled to receive medical treatment for your injury or injuries. Medical expenses that are “related” to your work injury are the responsibility of your employer and their workers’ compensation insurance carrier, provided they are “reasonable” and “necessary”. Once your claim is accepted, you should not have to make any co-payments or pay other fees related to treatment for your work injury.
Unfortunately, disputes often arise regarding what are “reasonable”, “necessary” and “related” medical expenses. If you are having difficulty getting treatment for your work injury, you may have legal recourse. Come to Musi, Malone & Daubenberger. We have extensive experience serving and protecting workers, and you can rely on us to help you resolve your workers’ compensation concerns as promptly and efficiently as possible.
