If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to receive medical care for the injury or illness, disability compensation for a portion of your list wages, rehabilitation services, and, in the event death, benefits payable to your survivors. It is extremely important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. Your employer or its workers’ compensation insurance company, will demand a written paperwork from you as well as a recorded statement.

If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits you have the option to file a Disputed Claim for Compensation, which is a workers’ compensation lawsuit. This process could take six to nine months, or longer if the case is appealed.

You have the freedom to choose your treating physician and may switch from one specialty of care to another without having to seek approval of the employer/insurer. You must have permission to switch from one provider to another within the same field of specialty.
