The most important part of your Workers’ Compensation case is not how fast you get your settlement.

The money will soon be gone, but the problems and pain from your injury may continue to linger and flare up.

Once you settle your Workmans Compensation case your medical treatment is over.

Then you either have to have medicare or your health insurance pay for the future medical.

The only way to get future medical covered is to win a trial before the Arbitrator. This provides the opportunity for the injured worker to request medical treatment if it is related to the original injury.

Remember to choose wisely. A quick settlement may not be the best option for you.

Your future medical treatment may be worth a lot more to you in the long run.
