Your employer or insurance company may be denying you medical treatment by a specialist you need, or it may be trying to force you to return to work before you are fully recovered. Your employer may even be denying your claim entirely. In these types of situations, you need an attorney experienced in fighting on behalf of injured people with similar issues.
Understanding Your Rights
As an injured worker, you may be entitled to payment of all medical treatment available to improve your condition. If you have lost work because of your injury, you will be entitled to temporary or permanent disability benefits. If you have had surgery or an injury leaving you with some permanent impairment, you may be entitled to additional compensation for permanent injury conditions such as:
- Back injuries, including herniated disks and fusion surgeries
- Shoulder surgeries
- Knee, ankle and other joint surgeries
- Traumatic brain injury resulting in cognitive impairment
- Burns and other injuries resulting in permanent scarring
