Recovering From A Construction Accident
Ideally, a workers’ compensation claim provides medical and monetary benefits to injured workers, which includes coverage for:
- Medical care
- Temporary disability
- Permanent disability
Medical treatment is required for you to recover from your injuries. Having access to the right doctor and getting authorization for the required treatment is an important part of your case. We can help you to select a doctor who can provide the appropriate care. Additionally, we can help you procure a medical legal evaluation to determine your overall permanent disability. The benefits you are eligible to receive depend largely upon these medical evaluations, so it is important that you see the right doctor. With more than 30 years serving clients in the Modesto and Stockton area, our firm can point you in the right direction.
