Injured at Work and Employer Refuses to Cover Medical Expenses

Serving Injured Workers in Trenton, Princeton, Hamilton and across Mercer County NJ

I got hurt at work, but my employer will not pay my medical bills and has not paid me any compensation. What can I do and what are my rights?

When you are injured at work, your employer has a legal obligation to select a medical provider, arrange for treatment, and pay for your care. In the early stages of your workers‘ compensation claim, your own doctor won’t provide treatment and your health insurance company won’t pay any of your claims.

The law allows us to direct them to go to their own treatment if in fact it has been denied by the employer. We can also petition to the court to get a court order which would require the employer to provide medical treatment at no cost to the employee.

Employer Delay or Refusal to Provide Medical Treatment to Injured Worker

Kamensky, Cohen & Riechelson is also prepared to help our clients through the process of filing for and receiving, workers’ compensation in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Employers are required by law to financially assist employees who are injured while on the job, regardless of who is at fault for the injury.

While employers are legally required to compensate you, it is not always in their best interest to do so or to do it quickly and efficiently. Our workers’ compensation attorneys help you ensure your rights as an employee are recognized and protected, and that you receive full compensation for your medical expenses and inability to work in a timely manner.
