Medical Treatment in Fresno

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys with 130 Years of Combined Experience

After you have been injured on-the-job, it is important that you receive all of the medical treatment necessary to make a full recovery. If you are wondering how to pay for this treatment, you have recourse through workers’ compensation. Thankfully, these benefits involve zero deductibles or co-pays.

Whether you were involved in a work accident, have sustained an occupational disease or if you have a prior health problem that has worsened as a result of your employment, you can file a workers’ compensation claim.

You may require all kinds of medical care that includes:

  • Doctor’s appointments
  • Laboratory tests
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription drugs
  • Surgeries
  • Chiropractor visits
  • Occupational therapy
  • Hospital stays
  • Sophisticated treatment

We Can Help You Avoid Dealing with Treatment Denial

Unfortunately, denials of treatment are all too common in California and can force you to prove medical necessity. Sometimes the California workers’ compensation system denies claims because of the treatment costs. That is why it is so imperative that you promptly retain an experienced Fresno workers’ compensation attorney’s counsel after sustaining an injury and filing a claim.

An insurance company may deny benefits for the following reasons:

  • Failure to report an injury immediately
  • Discrepancies between an accident report and medical records
  • The presence of illegal drugs at the time of the accident
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim after being fired or laid off
  • Refusal to give recorded statements to the insurance company
  • Failure to sign medical authorizations

Do not face the insurance company alone. An insurance adjuster is skilled at denying benefits to control costs.
