Will Worker’s Compensation Cover My X-Rays?
Have you sustained a job injury and subsequently suffered a broken bone or other injury that may require an x-ray before diagnosis? If so, then you not only need treatment – you need it now. An x-ray is the way that you will be diagnosed, both in emergency situations and by your orthopedist. And, of course, when you’re dealing with a medical emergency, the last thing you want to do is think about your medical bills.
Luckily, worker’s compensation can help. Worker’s compensation should cover both diagnosis and treatment of your condition. But if you are running into trouble, there is still something you can do. Your local highly experienced Miami Worker’s Compensation Lawyer Evan A. Hoffman can help to ensure that you are able to get all the care you need – including your diagnosis. By calling The Hoffman Firm at (800) 223-1866, you can receive more information right away to find out about how we can help.
There are a number of reasons you might have sustained a broken bone or another issue that requires x-rays, such as the presence of a foreign object in your body. There are a number of reasons you may have broken a bone on the job, no matter what the requirements of your workplace. If you fell due to a hazardous and unlabeled walking surface or were moving heavy equipment and injured yourself, you need immediate medical attention.
At The Hoffman Firm, we know all the ins and outs of filing a worker’s compensation claim. We also know that worker’s compensation should cover the diagnosis of your condition. However, there may also be other benefits to which you are entitled that you may not yet know about. No matter what the situation, you deserve all the support you need.
There are very few jobs in existence that do not expose workers to the risk of broken bones. Even if you do not work in a highly hazardous setting such as a factory, you are never fully safe from harm. You may simply be working in an office and experience a slip and fall due to a wet floor that was unmarked. Whatever your injury, you should be allowed worker’s compensation benefits, but you may also find yourself in need of filing a personal injury lawsuit against your employer.
