Getting the Medical Treatment You Need After a Work Injury
Under Illinois Workers' Compensation law, you have the right to receive medical treatment from a doctor of your own choice. Your employer is required by law to provide reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your work-related injury or medical condition. Despite the law, many companies routinely deny requests to authorize diagnostic testing or medical treatment and deny payment of other medical benefits.
Has the insurance company denied an MRI test, CAT Scan, medical evaluation, back or neck surgery, physical therapy or other medical treatment for your work-related injury? At Strong Law Offices, we understand how important it is for you, as an injured worker, to obtain the best possible medical care.
Call us toll free at 1-800-234-0090 to schedule a free consultation with an aggressive, yet caring, workers' compensation lawyer. We will fight as hard and as long as needed to get approval and payment for the medical testing and treatment you are entitled to under the workers' comp rules.
Don't Let Them Get Away With Deny and Delay Claim Strategies
Employers and insurance companies think that a percentage of employees won't bother to fight for the workers' compensation benefits to which they are entitled. By denying that an injury or accident is work-related, or by denying or delaying payment of medical bills, insurance companies hope that someone else — such as you, another insurance carrier, Medicare or other public insurance — will be forced to pick up the tab for your medical benefits.
Don't let your employer or the workers' comp insurance company escape paying for the medical benefits you need and deserve. If your doctor's request to authorize medical testing or treatment, or your request for payment of medical bills, has been denied or delayed, we will fight to help you get authorization for and payment of necessary medical treatment.
We Will Take Immediate Action to Protect Your Rights to Medical Benefits
At Strong Law Offices, we understand the intricacies of the Illinois workers' compensation laws. You deserve treatment for your work-related back injury or other workplace injury. When you hire our office to represent you, we immediately get a report or statement from your doctor, take prompt action to establish the claim as work-related and file for a hearing.
Our attorneys regularly take workers' comp medical benefit claims to arbitration at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. In a 19B Emergency Hearing, which must be heard by an arbitrator within 14 days, the arbitrator can order the employer and insurance company to authorize and pay for medical treatment.
From orthopaedic spine surgeons to neurologists, pain specialists and other health care professionals, our attorneys work with a large network of medical providers. We have successfully helped many employees get treatment from the appropriate medical specialists.
