Delay in Medical Treatment
For workers who have been injured in Missouri, they are often in need of medical treatment. And it is not just that they need medical treatment, but they need it now. One of the ways that insurance companies and employers flex their muscles is by delaying medical treatment to the injured workers who need it. The Missouri workers compensation law gives three main benefits to the injured worker. One of the benefits is the right for the injured worker in Missouri to seek medical treatment that is reasonable and have the insurance company or the employer pay for it. The insurance companies know that the injured worker must jump through certain hoops in order to protect this right, and when everything isn’t done correctly, the injured worker is told that they have to wait on medical treatment or that no medical treatment will be given at all.
What we do is make sure everything is done properly to ensure prompt and reasonable care for the injured workers. If you need a work comp attorney who can help, call us today for free.
