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.

Documentation need includes:

  • 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:

  • Surgery
  • Therapy
  • Medication
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Home medical assistance
