Getting Proper Medical Treatment For Work Injuries

At the Law Office of John Adams Christiansen, L.C., we understand that recovering from an injury is difficult — especially when you are unable to work and facing mounting medical bills. We help injured workers recover from their physical injuries as well as the financial implications of those injuries.

Employees who are injured on the job are typically entitled to full medical benefits. While employers typically choose the medical facility that provides the initial treatment immediately after a workplace injury, you may be able to choose a different physician after seeing your employer-designated doctor. This allows you to obtain thorough medical treatment and see a doctor you know and trust. However, if you are receiving medical treatment through the employer or insurance company, they have the ultimate choice of health care provider.

Just as you should seek attention from a physician to make sure your physical health is being taken care of, you should seek legal representation to preserve your workers' compensation claim and maximize your benefits. A knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney can help you secure the appropriate medical care and begin collecting evidence to strengthen your case.
