Finding Help After A Serious Work Accident
If you qualify for workers’ compensation, your employer’s insurance company is responsible for paying all medical expenses related to your injury. This coverage may include payment for:
- Doctor visits and checkups
- Tests and diagnostic procedures
- Surgery, if required
- Medications related to your injury
- Rehabilitative services and therapy
- Gas or other transportation costs needed to get you to your medical appointments
While you can usually choose your own health care provider, your insurance company may ask for an independent medical exam at some point during your recovery. This exam, though covered by insurance, is often used to deny or discontinue medical benefits. Having a lawyer on your side is crucial to protecting your rights to continued coverage if you still need it.
What Other Types Of Compensation Are Available?
Aside from workers’ compensation, you could be eligible for other benefits to help with your medical bills following a work-related accident. For example, if you were driving a company car or doing work-related activities and were involved in a car accident, you could pursue an accident claim against the negligent driver. Your own private health insurance can also cover any medical procedures not covered by workers’ compensation. One of Mr. Bailly’s jobs as your lawyer is to help you identify all claims you may have, including other third-party claims, to help you following a work-related accident.
