As Palm Beach Gardens workers’ compensation lawyers we see how frustrating and aggravating it can be to be injured on the job.
There are very few things worse than being hurt and having to rely on work comp to provide medical care and lost wages. Knowing medical care can be provided if only work comp would pick up the phone and call to get you into the doctor is not what you want to deal with when hurt at work.
Unfortunately, you are not a priority to work comp and getting you that MRI, prescription or test just isn’t something high on their to-do list. You may have even been sent to their doctor who recommended surgery, but the workers comp providers just drag their feet, delay medical care and even deny your surgery, so that they can hire an expert to say you don’t need the surgery that the doctor initially said you needed.
An experienced Palm Beach County work injury compensation lawyer is your best weapon when dealing with the workers’ compensation insurance industry. When represented by a work injury lawyer, you are ensuring that your injury is taken seriously and that the insurance company will not take advantage of you.
Workers’ Compensation insurance is set up so that medical care and lost wages are paid after you have been hurt at work. However, many changes in the law have created a situation where it can be cheaper to deny benefits rather than provide them.
