What Can You Do If You Are Denied Medical Treatment For A Work-Related Injury Or Illness?
Unfortunately, workers may face difficulties in getting the medical treatment they need for a work injury or occupational illness approved by their employer or the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. If your requests for treatment have been denied, the first step you may need to take is to obtain a second opinion, especially if your treating provider is against providing a specific treatment. By having other medical professionals opine that certain treatments will improve your condition, you increase the likelihood that your employer or their insurer will ultimately agree to authorize the treatment.
If your employer or the insurer refuses to agree to a certain treatment, then you may be forced to file a formal claim petition with the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation. In a claim petition, you can obtain a formal hearing before a workers’ compensation judge where you can present evidence and arguments to prove that the treatment you are seeking is reasonable and necessary. However, to ensure you have the best chance at obtaining relief on your formal claim petition, you should work with experienced NJ workers’ comp medical treatment lawyers from Camili & Capo, PA.
