Experienced New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Medical Benefits for Injured Workers
If you’ve been hurt at work and sought medical treatment, you want an experienced, knowledgeable and capable lawyer to help you pursue damages for all your losses. One of the benefits that an injured worker is entitled to is medical treatment and prescriptions for the duration of their claim.
Workers’ compensation claims can be complex, and the injuries can change a workers’ life and impact their family, their ability to pay basic bills. There are many potential pitfalls related to medical benefits claims for a worker who does not have an attorney to guide them, and each of those can deprive the worker of their rights without their knowing it. For example, you may be tricked into using a medical provider who is more interested in making the insurance company and employer happy than fully treating you and assessing your injuries. You want an attorney who has successfully helped others in similar circumstances. You want Buchanan Law.
