We Help Protect Injured Workers' Medical Treatment Rights

It's unfortunate, but too many companies do not properly support workers once they suffer an injury on the job. The workers' comp process can be unnecessarily difficult, and people sometimes make medical and financial missteps out of frustration.

That's why it's important to work with an experienced workers' compensation and medical treatment lawyer. At Gatlin Voelker, PLLC, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience helping injured workers get the medical treatment and compensation they deserve.

Get Your Medical Treatment Paid Through Workers' Comp Insurance

Employers and insurance companies are well-aware that injured workers are in a vulnerable situation when they are out of work with no benefits. It's not uncommon for these greedy outfits to attempt to leverage the situation.

  • In some cases, companies and agencies try to funnel injured workers to a doctor who has a track record of contributing to claim rejections.
  • In other instances, insurance companies attempt to deny benefits when you use your own doctor.

Fortunately, the laws regarding work-related injuries generally support your right to choose your own doctor. That makes perfect sense because you benefit from an ongoing doctor-patient relationship.

If you are confronted with an employer or insurance carrier that appears reluctant to pay your rightful injury claim — or if you've been denied benefits by the workers' comp board — our experienced legal team is fully prepared to push back. As a law firm that protects workers' rights and interests, we are ready to take the necessary steps to get your claim paid or file for a hearing in front of a judge to enforce the process.

Who Determines Your Level Of Impairment?

When your case reaches a critical juncture, the insurance company may call for an independent medical examination (IME) to determine your level of impairment. Our legal team will also seek an IME from another physician to rate your condition appropriately. This will be a decisive step in your workers' comp case because it will determine critical next steps in terms of treatment, coverage and obtaining full and fair compensation. As an injured worker, you can face significant legal and procedural hurdles that are better left to an experienced attorney.

If you have suffered a job-related injury, it's important that you get the workers' comp and medical treatment necessary to maintain your financial health and make a full recovery.
