Mississippi Workers’ Compensation-Future Medical Treatment in Settlements
Make sure your Mississippi workers’ compensation lawyer is getting every last dime for your future medical treatment. Just last week an insurance company on one of our workers’ comp settlements refused to include the cost of steroid injections for ongoing shoulder pain after shoulder surgery. We regularly write to the treating physician once a claimant has been released. We ask the doctor what the client’s restrictions and limitations are. We also ask the doctor what future medical treatment the client will need. After we contacted the doctors’ office and proved that the cost of the injections were directly attributable to the workers comp injury, the settlement offer went up by thousands.
