Medical Treatment And Costs For Work Injuries In California
You might be wondering how to get the best medical treatment and care after your work injury. You might also fear the possible cost.
The good news is that you are entitled to medical treatment at no cost in order to cure or relieve the effects of your work injury. California’s workers’ compensation laws allow you to have up to $10,000 worth of medical care and treatment in the first 90 days after the filing of your claim, or until the insurance company denies your claim.
If an insurance company denies your claim, Workers' Compensation Lawyer, Inc., can help you find doctors who will treat you on a lien, meaning the doctor will take the risk on your case and not charge you. The doctor hopes that your claim will be proven later at the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board by your attorney, and then the doctor can seek payment from the workers’ compensation insurance carrier.
What You Should Know About Getting Injury Treatment After An On-The-Job Accident
The main goal of filing a workers’ compensation claim is to receive coverage for medical expenses and receive the treatment and care you need. Through the workers’ compensation system, claimants can ensure that their injuries are treated and all costs are covered.
Unfortunately, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company may deny or undervalue your claim. This can leave you without proper care, causing you to forego treatment or cover the expenses on your own.
