Ideally, workers’ compensation benefits will restore a worker, enabling him or her to return to the workplace. Yet the program is about more than just short-term benefits.
If an accident leaves a worker with nerve injuries, for example, the injured nerve(s) may continuously transmit pain signals. Treating conditions like reflex sympathetic dystrophy or complex regional pain syndrome may require a search for the right combination of therapies and/or medications.
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance providers often prefer a quick resolution. Consequently, the insurance company may deny a claim for ongoing rehabilitation. Our law firm fights hard to make sure insurance companies do not take advantage of injured workers.
