Question:

If I’m injured at work, what medical bills will be paid for?

Answer:

The other day, someone from North Carolina called me, and they were upset, angry even, that they had been injured on the job. The employer had sent them to their company doctor, and they were still getting bills for that treatment when this case happened – their injury happened on the job, and it was the employer’s responsibility to pay the bills. First of all, if you are injured on the job, your company or your workers’ compensation carrier should pay all medical bills for treatment from the emergency room that is related to the injuries that you had on the job. If you have to go to a specialist such as an orthopedist, your company should pay all of those bills. If you had to be transported to the emergency room from the worksite or from some other place, the ambulance bill should be paid for by the employer.

If your employerWorkers' Compensation Medical Expenses is not paying these bills, then that’s a red flag that your employer may not be following other rules that might impact you that you may not know about. Understand that the employer knows their rights, and they know your rights, and if they know that you don’t know your rights, they will use the superior knowledge to try to save themselves money, so if you find yourself in this situation where bills aren’t getting paid, you – that’s a red flag that you need to contact an experienced Richmond County, NC attorney to not only make the employer pay all the medical bills, but to assess the entire case to make sure this employer isn’t trying to pull the wool over your eyes in other parts of your case.
