Who Is Responsible for My Medical Bills?
If you are injured on the job as a result of someone else’s negligence, whether it’s your employer or a third party, you should not have to pay for any medical treatment. In most cases, injured workers can file a workers’ compensation claim. With a work comp claim, your employer’s insurance provider is responsible for all of your medical bills.
If your workplace accident was caused by a third party—such as a product manufacturer, an unrelated motorist, or another person or entity—you may be able to file a third-party personal injury claim. In doing so, you would be able to seek compensation for your past and future medical expenses through the liable party’s insurance company.
What About Future Medical Expenses?
After a work accident, you may suffer from resulting complications that require long-term care and future medical expenses. In a work injury lawsuit, we take this into account.

What About the Cost of Prescription Medications?
Part of recovering from an injury or dealing with a persistent, life-long condition is having the proper medication. Without the right prescription medications, work-induced illnesses or injuries can become impossible to cope with and even harder to recover from.
However, prescription medications can be incredibly expensive and without assistance from your employer, it may be impossible to pay for the medicine you need.
If you find yourself struggling financially after a work-related accident, contact Wagner Reese and discover how we can help you get the money you deserve. You don’t want to be without the medications you need, especially when you are protected by the law.
What About the Cost of Independent Medical Exams?
Independent medical exams are often conducted as part of work injury reviews. In order to maintain accurate records and get a thorough an account of the accident, many employers require injured workers to see a medical examiner they have not previously been to. This ensures the doctor-patient relationship will not unfairly benefit the injured person.
However, independent medical exams are often costly and time-consuming. If you have been asked to undergo independent medical exams but were not properly compensated for them through your workers’ compensation benefits, Wagner Reese can assist you in getting the compensation you deserve to cover these extra medical expenses.
