Using The Law To Ensure Your Medical Bills Are Covered
Unexpected medical bills can severely damage a family’s finances. If you or someone you love has been injured at work, one of your biggest concerns is making certain that the medical expenses are covered. A workers’ compensation lawyer is instrumental in making sure they are.
Attorney Kenneth Kaplan of the Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C. represents injured workers across New Jersey in workers’ compensation claims. Our law firm is prepared to take decisive action to ensure you receive the medical treatment you deserve.
How much of your Medical Treatment should the insurance company pay for?
Under New Jersey law, if you have a work-related injury, your employer or its insurance company should be responsible for 100 percent of the cost of your medical treatment. However, they also have a right to select your treating doctor.
Frustrated With The Medical Care You Are Receiving?
One of the biggest issues in any workers’ compensation claim is the choice of doctor. At the Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., we speak with working men and women on a daily basis who are frustrated with the level of care they are receiving from the insurance company’s doctor. It is important to know that if you are unhappy with the medical treatment you are receiving and go to your own doctor, you put yourself in jeopardy of having to pay these bills yourself.
While this is not ideal, do not be discouraged. The law does provide a means for you to dispute the course of your treatment.
Paterson medical benefits lawyer Kenneth Kaplan is adept at handling the full range of medical treatment benefits issues. He will sit down with you and develop a plan to get you proper medical treatment. If necessary, our firm will expeditiously file the required motion so your case is heard by an independent judge. Your employer or its insurance company does not get the “final say.” The judge does.
