Medical Treatment for a Work Injury
Columbia Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Suffering an injury while at work can be an extremely difficult circumstance
to face. It is important for you to know that you may be able to collect
money damages for the injuries you have sustained, and you can do this
through filing a
workers' compensation claim. This involves sending in certain documentation within two days
of the accident, and if your claim is accepted, then you will receive
compensation for damages, such as:
- Medical bills
- Costs of recovery
- Loss of wages
In some cases, victims are not physically injured at work; some incur a
disease or other disability due to chemical exposure or other circumstances.
If your health has been severely affected while at work, then you need
to discuss your options with a skilled representative. Workers' compensation
should cover any reasonably necessary medical procedure in order to facilitate
recovery for you.
In addition to the recovery mentioned above, the following procedures may
be covered by workers' compensation:
- Outpatient treatment
- Home medical assistance
