San Jose Workers’ Comp Attorney
Anyone who is hurt as a result of a work related injury or accident is entitled to receive full medical coverage to pay for their emergency medical care and any additional treatment deemed necessary to recover from the effects of the injury. Workers’ compensation insurance is a federal and state mandated “no-fault” insurance plan required to be supplied by your employer. Once you report your injuries to your employer the workers’ comp coverage begins and your medical bills and expenses are supposed to be paid by the insurance carrier. Because there is an insurance company involved, it sometimes happens that a claim is rejected, reduced or delayed by the insurance adjuster. This can mean any medical care you have already received may only be partially paid or not paid for at all, leaving you responsible for the bill. To prevent this, you should speak to a San Jose workers’ comp lawyer at Law Offices of Nooshin Dalili.
