Medical Treatment Guidelines For Workers’ Compensation
Experienced Ukiah Work Injury Lawyer
As a worker covered by workers’ compensation insurance, you are entitled to benefits that pay for medical care if you are injured while on the job. However, getting medical care is another story. Workers’ compensation insurance companies want to keep their claim costs low, so they often deny claims or prematurely terminate benefits. If you have suffered a workplace injury, you may need legal help to get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.

We Help Injured Workers Get Medical Care
In California, injured workers must be treated by a doctor who is part of the employer’s medical provider network (MPN). If your employer does not have an MPN, you can go to a doctor of your choice. However, few doctors in Mendocino County and Lake County accept workers’ compensation patients. We can help you find a doctor who will objectively evaluate your injury and provide the treatment you need.
Our website has more information about medical treatment benefits, but this is a very complex topic. Let us put our knowledge and experience to work for you.
