What Medical Benefits Are You Entitled To Receive?
Your ability to earn a living and support your family depends to a large degree on your health. That’s why it is important to obtain quality medical care when you have been injured.
However, although you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits that can pay for needed medical care, the workers’ compensation insurance company may deny your claim or terminate your benefits before you have completely recovered. You may have to retain the services of an attorney to get the medical care and disability benefits you are entitled to.

Chronic Pain Cases
A typical scenario that we see all the time runs as follows:
- An employee gets in a car accident while on the job and suffers orthopedic injuries.
- The doctor repairs the physical damage through surgery.
- The worker continues to suffer chronic pain because only the orthopedic injuries were treated, not the soft tissue injuries.
Because the treating doctor says the worker has reached the point of maximum medical improvement (at least as far as the orthopedic injuries are concerned), the insurance company then stops paying workers’ compensation benefits.
In a situation like this, we can get a second medical evaluation and use that to keep the workers’ compensation claim open so that our client can obtain medical treatment for the soft tissue injuries.
