your medical expenses
There are limits on how many times you can be compensated for doctor’s appointments and other medical services. Determining the full extent of the medical treatment you will need is not easy to predict, particularly in the immediate aftermath of the accident. Therefore, you need to make sure that you and your attorney have done a thorough investigation to estimate the total cost of your medical expenses.
We’ll Give You the Personalized Attention You and Your Case Need
Medical expenses covered in workers’ compensation may include:
Clinical lab testing
Emergency room care
Generally, alternative medicine treatments such as acupuncture and massage therapy are not covered by workers’ compensation. However, exceptions are sometimes made to these rules. One important thing to note is that seeking these treatments on your own cannot be used against you when filing for workers’ comp. If you choose to pay for alternative medicine treatments from your own pocket, the insurance company cannot use this as cause to deny compensation for your other medical expenses.
If an alternative medicine treatment is making a demonstrative difference in your condition and you need compensation to continue the treatment, you may be able to build a case on these grounds. This is best done with an attorney’s assistance, as you will need to provide evidence as to why this treatment is crucial to your recovery.
