Delayed Medical Treatment
Did you have a work injury and have your medical treatment delayed?
In Shandler & Associates' experience, the insurance companies and/or employers are notorious for delaying treatment. If you've been injured, the workers compensation insurance company is obligated to provide up to $10,000.00 worth of medical treatment before the carrier makes a decision to accept or deny your case.
Unfortunately, employer's often do not refer injured workers to doctors without making them wait or telling the injured worker he will be okay after resting for awhile. Some employers say they will let the injured worker know the next day or after the weekend whether the employer will refer the injured worker to a doctor. This is unacceptable. But you need an strong and dedicated experienced attorney like those of Shandler & Associates to fight for your benefits.
If you believe that you have a medical emergency situation, call an ambulance and/or report to your local hospital emergency room. as soon as possible. Be sure to advise the emergency room personnel and doctor that you believe your symptoms are work related and give them your employers information if you believe the cause of your medical emergency is your work injury.
