Workplace Injury Frequently Asked Questions

WARNING: All of the information provided here is of a general nature only. The specific facts of your case may require a completely different answer. Do not base any decision with respect to your case solely on any of the answers found herein. Prior to making any decision with respect to your case, you should speak with a competent attorney who is familiar with the laws that relate to your case.

What do I do about my medical bills related to the accident if the workers comp insurance company is dragging its feet or if it has denied my claim? I’m afraid the doctors and hospitals are going put me in collections or even worse, take me to court for all the money I owe them!

So long as your claim is properly filed and pending before the Commission, the law prohibits any of your medical providers who treated you for your injuries from engaging in any collection activities until your claim has been heard and a final Order entered in your claim. We instruct our clients to report any of these activities to us immediately. We then send a “cease and desist” letter to the offending provider and quote the statute that prohibits such activities. That usually takes care of the problem right away.
