Free Legal Aide for Everyone
The Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company is responsible for all reasonable and necessary treatment costs connected with your case. It doesn’t matter if it’s a visit at a doctor’s office, a long stay in a hospital, surgery, physical therapy or even devices like crutches or a wheelchair: if the court says they have to pay, then they must pay. You do not have to pay any deductibles, co-pays or any of the medical costs.
On the other hand, if you don’t tell the doctors that your injury is work related, or you never file your claim, that could lead to significant costs for you, as well as the loss of monetary benefits.
