Holding Insurance Companies Accountable for Medical Claims

In order to receive medical care as part of your workers' compensation package, your workers' comp claim must first be accepted. If your initial claim is denied, it may still be possible to get your employer's insurance provider to cover your medical bills. The lawyers at Downer, Walters & Mitchener, P.A., will not rest until we have pursued every available avenue for compensation.

Once your claim is accepted, your employer's insurance provider is required to provide the medical care you need for your on the job injury. However, the insurance provider still controls the treatment process, meaning it gets to pick the doctor and decide whether certain tests or courses of treatment will be covered.

In an effort to help keep their costs low, insurance carriers will often deny certain recommended treatments. If this happens, we will stand up for you to help you get the medical help and prescriptions you need. We can also help you seek a change in medical doctors if you are not happy with the insurance provider's choice.
