What are Medical Entitlements?

Claiming Medical Entitlements at Work

An employee in the State of California has the right to seek medical treatment for their work-related injuries under workers' compensation law. Thousands of workers are injured in California every year, and they are entitled to all necessary medical care at the expense of their employer or their employer's workers' comp insurance company.

What medical entitlements are injured workers given? In addition to covering the medical care itself, workers are entitled to reimbursement for mileage to and from their appointments. Workers who suffer temporary disabilities that render them unable to complete their job duties are also able to seek compensation for two-thirds of their average weekly wage. These temporary disability benefits are not taxable and only last for a period of two years.

Medical Benefits for Workers' Comp Claims

If your medical examination shows that you have suffered a permanent impairment, you can recover permanent disability benefits in the form of a cash settlement for your injuries. There is also a supplement job displacement voucher that provides money for workers who have been prevented from returning to their field of occupation because of their injuries.

Before you attempt to determine what medical benefits you are entitled to as an injured worker, you should call an experienced Oakland workers' comp lawyer who can represent your best interests.

There is medical-legal process that must be followed to evaluate an injured worker's claim which includes an examination by a qualified medical evaluator. The important thing to remember is that these evaluations will not be restricted to your workers' comp claim and they can be regurgitated and used in a personal injury case.

If you are thinking about filing a personal injury claim at some point in the future, you must keep in mind the impact that a qualified medical evaluation will have on your claim.
