Workers' Compensation And Medical Treatment

Recovering from a work-related injury isn't easy, and having to fight an insurance company for the benefits you need for medical care only makes it harder. At Cousins, Desrosiers & Morizio, P.C., we understand the importance of helping employees recover from their physical injuries while protecting them from the financial ramifications of those injuries..

Under Connecticut medical treatment guidelines for work-related injuries, eligible workers who have been hurt at work have a right to collect medical benefits. Employers are responsible for providing the initial medical treatment at a facility or office of their choosing.

To seek thorough medical advice from a doctor you trust, you may be able to change physicians after seeing a doctor chosen by your employer.

Just as it is critical to seek medical care from a doctor to make sure your physical health is being taken care of, it is also essential to seek legal counsel if you are pursuing benefits under Connecticut's workers' compensation laws. Our experienced workers' compensation lawyers will help you understand your options so you can get the appropriate medical care for your situation.
