Handling Medical Bills While Injured

Taking Care Of Your Medical Bills Can Be Challenging

If you have been injured at work, you are potentially facing some difficulties. Having to juggle mounting medical bills along with your normal household expenses while dealing with pain and recovery can be stressful and scary. You may feel overwhelmed and unsure of what to do.

Fortunately, there is a solution. In Pennsylvania, workers' compensation laws require employers and their insurance companies to pay for reasonable, necessary medical treatment related to their employees' work injuries.

How You Can Protect Your Right To Covered Medical Care

At Golden Law Firm, we have decades of experience in workers' compensation laws. There is no need to take this on yourself — a skilled lawyer can help ensure that your employer's insurance company pays your medical bills, in addition to meeting your other financial needs.

Your right to medical care paid for by your employer is protected by law. In some cases, insurance companies can be penalized for not paying medical bills on time or refusing to pay for medical treatment. There are a few things you can do to give yourself the best possible chance at a successful case if this happens:

  • Maintain records of every aspect of your injury and treatment. Keep records regarding notification of your employer that you were injured, the doctors who examined you and all your bills related to your health care during this time.
  • Be as timely as possible. There are some important deadlines when it comes to workers' compensation law that you must follow to have a successful case. An attorney can help you with this.

Regardless of your type of injury, you should not assume that you need to deal with it alone. Your employer is insured for workplace injuries. You should take advantage of that coverage.
