What Kind of Medical Treatment Will I Receive?

Aggressive Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Concord

If you are injured at work, you want to rest assured you receive the proper medical treatment needed to ensure a proper recovery. According to the workers' compensation laws, workers are required to choose treatments that have been scientifically proven to cure or relieve injuries and illnesses. These treatments are laid out in a set of guidelines. Workers' compensation laws also dictate the duration of treatments, frequency of treatments and duration of treatments.

North Carolina Workers' Compensation Law

The North Carolina Workers' Compensation Law requires that medical treatment shall be provided by the employer. This includes any treatment or expense that could cure the injury, lessen a disability or relieve pain.

This definition of medical care is very liberal, and can mean a variety of things such as:

  • Doctor's appointments
  • Surgery
  • Medications
  • Therapies

Employers may also be required to cover necessary expenses affiliated with the accident like:

  • Prosthetics
  • Wheelchairs
  • Adjustable beds
  • Wheelchair accessible housing

Employees have the right to request a second opinion with a physician appointed by the North Carolina Industrial Commission if they would prefer to do so.

How Long Will Financial Assistance Last?

The North Carolina statutes require that medical treatment last for as long as required as long as there is not a two year lapse in the payment of benefits. Some employees can avoid this two year limitation by obtaining approval from the Industrial Commission of Anticipated Future Medical Needs.

The goal of the Workers' Compensation System in North Carolina is to ensure that you get the health care you need to restore you as nearly as possible to the health and ability to work as you had prior to your injury.
