Answering Your Workers’ Compensation Questions
A workplace injury is a dire moment, and you likely have many questions. The attorneys at Jacobs & Wallace, PLLC, have answers on which you can rely throughout your legal journey.
Please keep in mind that the information on this page is generalized and there is a wide range of factors that may influence your case and change the answers. We encourage you to reach out to our attorneys for specific and personally crafted legal advice.
Should I see a doctor right away?
If you need immediate medical care, please do not hesitate to see a doctor. Throughout your case, you will need a full medical examination and diagnosis. You should not put off your medical care.
Who will pay my medical bills?
In a successful workers’ compensation suit, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider will pay your bills. However, this may take time, and some bills may be due before your claim is complete. In those cases, you may get reimbursed for payment or be able to delay bill payment until after your claim.
How long will it take to get a settlement?
Every case is different. In some cases, you may get a settlement offer right away. In other cases, you may have a longer wait. Insurance companies often offer settlements quickly but will undervalue your needs in the process. It is worth being patient and reviewing your settlement in depth with an attorney, even if it takes longer.
