Charleston Medical Benefits Lawyer
Workers injured on the job in South Carolina have the right to fully paid medical benefits. The medical benefits provided include doctor visits, medications, physical therapy, hospitalizations, surgeries, rehabilitation treatments, and mileage to and from visits for medical treatment. In some cases, medical compensation can include such items as prosthetics devices and prescriptions for life. These medical compensation benefits apply in addition to indemnity, or disability benefits.
If you are receiving or need to apply for medical treatment, care, or compensation under the South Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation system, contact Alan M. Tanenbaum, P.A., to discuss your case with a medical benefits lawyer in Charleston.
Assessing Your Disability
Insurance companies and workers in South Carolina’s Workers’ Compensation medical benefits process will seek a determination of an injured worker’s level of disability. The doctor appointed by the employer is the one who generally assigns temporary and permanent work restrictions, and is also the professional who will likely initially assess the worker’s level of temporary and permanent disability. Whether an injured employee will return to work, to what capacity and for how long is the significance of these assessments.
Naturally, workers, employers and insurance companies do not always agree, and may ultimately seek a decision from the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission to resolve their medical compensation issues. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can assist you in obtaining the maximum medical benefits and the best possible care for your injury.
