More and more, workers are being forced to drive their own vehicles when performing during working hours in order to perform work activities and duties. However, less and less, employers are providing little or no protection for employees if they are involved in an accident.
This post is part four of a nine part series discussing what you should know when driving your car during work. This installment will discuss medical expenses for work-related motor vehicle accidents (You can view previous posts in this series online here)
The workers’ compensation insurance carrier is responsible for paying for any and all reasonable and necessary medical expenses needed in order to treat your accident-related injury(s). There is no other limitation on this benefit. If your work-related injury requires treatment for the rest of your lifetime, the workers’ compensation insurance carrier is responsible to pay the bills.
While you are receiving treatment, the workers’ compensation carrier may often try to challenge or deny medical treatments which you may need. If the carrier denies necessary treatment, you need to contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney in order to obtain the necessary and needed medical treatment.
