Central Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Medical Benefits
At Gilbert Law Group PLLC, we believe injuries that occur at work deserve appropriate compensation. Many injuries require medical attention, which can be very costly. It’s critical that an employee gets the care they deserve without breaking the bank. Medical benefits can help compensate for the doctor or hospital visits, medication, or therapy. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have over 30 years of combined experience in helping injured workers attain the compensation they deserve.
We support workers’ claims that are a result of:
- Back injuries
- Wrist injuries
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Repetitive trauma injuries
- Repetitive strain (stress) injuries
Our firm successfully represents workers injured in their duties at the Toyota auto Plant (Georgetown), 3M Plant (Cynthiana), Tokico (USA), Inc (Berea) and Trane (Lexington).
The law requires that you report your work injury to your employer as soon as you think you’ve had one. Make sure you note any details you can remember, as they usually fade quickly. Documenting the situation can help us build a better case for you. We recommend that you talk to us as soon as possible to make sure you get the benefits you need and deserve. We can also make sure your medical and income benefits are continued for as long as you need them.
If your injury results in a permanent disability, we can help you file a social security disability claim. If you are unable to work, you need to be compensated for the loss of income. Our goal is to get you appropriate income and benefits if you are unable to work.
Does Workers’ Comp Pay For Emergency Room Visits?
Yes. While most companies prefer you use their specified workers’ compensation panel doctors, if you are in an emergency situation and are unable to wait to see a workers’ compensation doctor, you may go to an emergency room for treatment, as long as your injuries are covered by workers’ compensation. However, after the emergency has been handled, you must go back to seeing a workers’ comp doctor in order for your treatment to continue being covered.
Your Representative Against The Insurance Companies
Gilbert Law Group PLLC works with your insurance company to save you the hassle and prevent the insurance adjusters from harassing or taking advantage of you. If your medical benefits have been cut off and you still need treatment, we can help extend your benefits. While an insurance company has the right to dispute recommendations, we can help ensure that you receive the medical compensation you deserve.
